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.

Too Smug for My Own Good

I guess I should have known better. Dismiss a leak because the plumber is coming? Guess what? No plumber. No call, no anything. Sign. I guess I know what I'll be doing once I get the floors prepped for sanding.

[Update: the plumber is allegedly coming Saturday morning. Will he make it?!]

Dude, Love your blog style. Trying to get into this houseblog community myself. I'm having a similar plumbing problem at the shower I just "fixed" and I'm procrastinating about getting a plumber too. The furnace is just a little more critical right now. Anyways, check out my house blog at
