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.

Rum Is My Silver Lining

Thank you for all the comments regarding the waterproofing of our crawlspace. I'll take some pictures so I can show you what we have to work with here. I'll have those up soon.

I have a monsterously long post that may make it up later tonight or tomorrow for sure (fingers crossed). Lets just say that I had a viseral encounter with the Devil Queen's plumbing last night which ended in rum. Yes, rum would be the silver lining for the evening. Anyhow, more later.

Now that's a home improvement that I could live with! Hot and cold running rum.
