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.

Our Nominally Finished Master Bathroom

The mirror is temporary. We'd like to get a much larger one but couldn't find one we like before the appraisal. Also, we're going to linseed oil the cedar vanity and I'm going to paint sunflowers all over the white top and seal it.

If you don’t get a very good appraisal there is something wrong with this world.

The bathroom is beautiful. What color is the paint? Is it a greenish-yellow or yellow-ish green? Whatever the color, it works! And I like the stand the sinks sit on. Did you thrift this or was it built? Very nice. Your floors are beautiful too.

Oh yeah, how does it feel to live in a place that is put together and pretty much done?

Cat, Thanks! And, incase you can't tell, I finally stripped all the plastic and newspaper off the windows so sun can shine in again. Very nice.

Greg, I agree but I don't know if that will save us.

Patricia, thank you. I can't remember the exact color name or brand. And, the exact color of the green changes with the lighting. Overall, it yellowish-green, more green than yellow that is. The sink is a post in itself. The short version: the stand was built by Scarlet's grandpa, Kenny and Burt put the top on it, and we bought the vessel sinks and the faucets off ebay. More on all of that later.

Angus, Thanks!

Julia, very funny. The appraiser said nearly the same thing, "Boy, these colors really get you going in the morning, don't they?" I can't take credit for the colors, my wife picked most of them, but thank you none the less.

Kristin, thanks! Again, all the color credit goes to my wife, but I will certainly pass it on to her.
