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.

Happy Walpurgis Night

I just wanted to wish you all a happy Walpurgis Night. Don't let the evil bastards and the restless dead get you . . .

I've been hoping to finish a few projects to post about, but I haven't managed that yet.

I've also been collecting unused building material to return, but there is a big pile of things which can't be returned for a variety of reasons (opened package, no receipt, can't remember where I bought it, etc). I'm going to take pictures and post them here and perhaps on eBay too. So far I have a few circuit breakers, lots of pvc & cpvc fittings, sink traps, accessories leftover from our stolen tools (table saw guide, battery charger, etc), and more. I'm not planning to ask much for this stuff. I just want it out of my house and don't want to throw it away. I hope to have it up by Friday this week. If you see something you want/like, let me know.

I've completed a few very small projects around the house, but nothing post worthy. Hopefully, I'll do something more interesting soon.
