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.

Bloody Hell

Home improvement cock-block strikes again.  Spent all day cleaning, painting, and preparing the front triple-sash window so I can put up the storm, and I finished it.  I got the top storm up with no problems.  Went to clean the lower storm and cracked the bottom fucking pane.  My fault of course.  So, I call Lowe's, not because I actually believe they will be able to help, but it's like doing due diligence.  They don't have any glass big enough.  No surprise there.  Saturday night in BFE Arkansas.  It's be Monday before I can even find glass for the storm. Grrrr.

On the upside, I did get all of the living room storms up.

Yuck, not fun. I think our storm windows have been on the house since the day they were installed- maybe in the 60's or 70's? We've debated taking them down to clean them, but I think we may just leave them be. Good luck with yours, sounds like a lot of work!
