The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

My Photo
Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

Last of the Kitchen Touch-Ups

That's right. I finally set up a frigging scaffolding and painted the rest of the vent hood and touched up the purple. The milk paint has stored well, and, with the good old 1 part powder, 1 part water mix, only two coats were needed. I think it took longer to set up and take down the scaffold than to paint the vent hood.

And, this project was finished 7 hours before our 9 AM appraisal. The scaffolding came down 4 hours before the appraisal. Let me tell you folks, it was all fun and games.
