The Devil Queen

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

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.

Vanguard of Our Return

Hello all, I just wanted to let you know that we have not died or been imprisoned. Instead, we've "finished up" in the sense that the Devil Queen looked more like a house than a construction site for its appraisal. No word yet on what our final value is, but we should know very soon. In the mean time, we decided to put both our cars in the shop for very expensive repairs. I know, it seems rather premature to start celebrating, but what the hell.

I promise (insomuch as the Fates will permit me) a return to form soon, hopefully this week. Photos, embaressing stories, typographical errors and omissions, flying monkeys, and all the usual fare.

How terrible that you're *still* waiting! I hope you hear soon.
