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.

Comic Genius

I am sure most of you Housebloggers have already seen this. This post is for my wife's and my family's benefit. I think they'll get a kick out of it.

Short version: The Wall Street Journal interviewed a bunch of housebloggers for a story on remodeling parties. And, they did write a story about that except they took the angle of dumbasses invited friends over, get drunk, and destroy the house. Some of the housebloggers felt used and misrepresented by the Journal, and the whole episode has provided fodder for some excellent commentary in the form of Halloween costumes.
