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.

Irresistible Urge

I must be loosing my mind. What does it mean when you have a nearly irresistible urge to hurry home after work and build a dry-stacked rock retaining wall? That is a sign of mental illness, right? Maybe I've been spend too much time inside lately? Whatever it is, I may have to indulge it.

If you'd believe it, I've actually done a few things on the Devil Queen lately but haven't had enough time to post them. That is an entire post in itself.

If I have any surplus energy after digging in the earth, I'll try to get you a proper update. No rest for the wicked and all that.

Oooh! Stacked stone walls are SO pretty! Please post photos when you can. (And have some Ben-Gay handy, too, I'd imagine.)

A constant reader/lurker,
