  • Fairy Garden, After starting to build my children's tree house village, I looked down and thought, If I want this to be a truly magical place, I would like to see something magical everywhere!  My friend Beth Nichols and I decided to create a Fairy Garden to encourage a magical experience!  Our tree houses are still being built (as you may see some construction materials in the background of my photos), but I feel that the garden is well done!

  • This photo album is experiencing technical difficulties., Here you see part of my little girls back yard playground that I have been building over the past seventeen or so months.  These Tree Creations in Geneseo, NY are a growing tree house village (at a private residence), consisting of themed tree houses connected with rope bridges for all to enjoy!

My Tree Creations were inspired by Maurice and Marie Barkley of Henrietta, NY. A visit while in college made me think "This would be nice to have for my grandchildren one day," and the thought was filed away. 

In May of 2011, a freak accident happened that took the eyesight from my left eye. A dry paint slug from an unplugged, disassembled latex paint sprayer shot out like a rubber bullet, hitting my nose. The Doctor said that if it had hit my eye, I would not be here today. This experience helped me realize the true meaning of "carpe diem" (or "seize the day") and that I may not be here for my grandchildren. When my daughters  asked for a tree house, I got to work. 

Being the princesses that all daughters is to their father, the first tree house started was one with a Castle theme. With a deck size of almost 120 square feet, it was to be grand in every way. 

During construction of this castle, we took a trip to the Long Island Children's museum. At the museum, some automotive parts were used in creating a make-believe automobile that was being enjoyed by all who touched it. Jokingly, I said to my wife, "we should put a Pinto in the tree" and then in an "ah hah" moment, my wife and I said "The Triumph."  (the car seen as my HGTV's profile picture).

In February 2012, a 1946 Triumph Renoun was dragged out from my scrap pile to breathe new life. The Triumph and the Castle were being built simultaneously with a purpose - to entertain children. I immediately remembered Maurice and Marie Barkley and their tree house village. 

I invited Mr. Barkley to see what he inspired me to build, and he informed me that he could no longer perform maintenance on his tree houses, and made a decision to donate the remains of their MYSTREES tree house village to the Tree Creations complex.  I am presently trying to restore some of these tree houses in honor of the work and inspiration that Mr. Barkley gave me.

The car was resurrected and re-purposed as a tree house and perched upon telephone poles with rigging that I designed and built.  Each of the tree houses (including the castle) are suspended by aircraft cable to allow for trees to sway in different directions (as not to tear the decks apart), to let the trees grow (without drilling into the trees), and to allow for adjustment (in case the rate of tree growth differs from tree to tree).  Most tree houses are between 10 and 12 feet in the air, with the lowest being the car (at 8 feet), and the highest being our church themed tree house deck at 20 feet.  The tallest point in the tree houses is the Church steeple where the tip is just over 32 feet off the ground!

Our village presently consists of a 1946 Triumph 1800 Saloon automobile, a veranda, a village square (roughly 250 square feet, which features a retractable set of stairs, a dumbwaiter, an elevator, and built in seating), a tea room, a wizard's den, the Margrose castle (on roughly a 120 square foot deck with towers over 15 feet tall), and a church (complete with stain glass windows and bells in the bell tower). 

Present items under construction to add to our other seven tree houses  include a "House of illumination", Galilean themed observatory, and a music themed tree house that includes a hand built / home-made pipe organ and other instruments for children to play!

Being a fourth generation "Townie" of Geneseo, NY, the tree house village will be around for generations to come as positive memories to all who help me build and play in it. 

Since the tree house complex is at a private residence, we would request that any visits are by appointment please. All are invited to come and play!  These are difficult economic times and I do not want to exclude anyone, so I am trying to keep this at no charge to enjoy!

Keep in mind, "we are on this earth but once, so any happiness we can bring or any joy we can give, do it now - without haste, for we shall not pass this way again" -unknown. 

Now let's have some fun! , Other Spaces Design

  • Boy's Race Car Bedroom, This is my son's new Race Car themed room. Besides a race car bed, the room was completed with a tool chest dresser, a Disney Car's rug, an alarm clock, a race car M&M's lamp, and a custom built table top cars town. The bottom features adjustable shelving made out of an old entertainment center that we didn't need anymore. I just applied some red paint too it, and attached an L shaped table top made of 3/4 inch birch plywood to it. The walls were painted in a 3 colored scheme, and then I applied wall decals. Lastly added some art decor by applying a larger mural decal to a sheet of 3/4 inch plywood and hung it over the bed., Boys' Rooms Design

  • Big Boy Room!, We moved our son into his big boy room this weekend and he is so excited.  We built the theme around the RACE CAR BED.  He loves it.  We wanted to do the room blue but the ceilings are so tall we decided to do half and half with the existing wall color (a mushroom cap brown).  We are planning to add a race car stripe (about 2.5 inches wide) to the top of the blue but have not had a chance yet.  What do you think?, Boys' Rooms Design

  • Self Storage Industry Facts, Self storage industry in the United States has been booming at a screaming rate. Between the years 2000 to 2005, there were over 3,000 storage facilities built every year in the country. The size of the storage industry in US is bigger than the size of the Manhattan Island. According to estimates, one out of ten households take rental self storage units. 

Self-storage facilities can be hired by both individuals and businesses. Some of the most common sizes of storage units hired are 5X5, 5X10 and 5X15. Individuals use storage units to keep their household goods such as seasonal clothing and other goods. Apart from household goods, many use storage units for keeping their vehicles while they are not in the country. Businesses use self storage units for keeping their office inventory, documents, furniture among many other goods in storage units. 

Some of the reasons for people to hire self storage space are: 

Outdoor parking for storing RVs and boats
Alarms on individual storage units
Complimentary use of dollies and furniture carts
Complimentary use of moving vans
Elevators for multi-storied facilities
Drive-up loading docks and access to outside units 
Automatic entry with computerized access
Surveillance cameras and monitoring stations
