The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

My Photo
Name:
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.

Here are some of the photos I'm sending to the claims adjustor today. Special thanks to my in-laws for loaning me the camera.

Terrible, just terrible. Seeing the photos of all that damage just almost makes me sick.

Perhaps you need a dog to secure your perimeter?

If you still have the footprint, I do know a few good voodoo spells...

Getting robbed sucks; I've had things from my yard stolen and my storage unit/garage broken into, but (touch wood) not our house.

Ugh! Nobody should have to deal with something like that.

Thanks everyone. Dogs would be a logical addition as far a security goes, but it opens up a whole other set of issues. The door will probably not be salvagable as a front door which sucks. It was one of the few things original to the house that was left.
