  • Our Christmas Home!, We love Christmas so much so I try to make the house as warm and cozy as possible during Christmas.  I often have people say that they would love to come visit me and bake cookies when they see pictures so I feel like I am getting the look I am going for for the most part.  Our house is very small (less than 1300 sqft) so it can be tough to fit in all that I wish I could but I do my best.  Excuse the old tv!  That is the one part of the room we need to update more than anything...haha  I would love to buy a fireplace and a a tv to hang above it for that wall!  That would really help complete the space for me., Holidays Design

  • Our Christmas Home - 2012, I can't even begin to explain the love I have for Christmas.  I think about it all year.  I am ready to decorate the second Halloween is over.  I adore everything about it. 

Our home is small but I cram as much Christmas decor as I can into it...haha   I don't follow all the trends when it comes to decorating, especially with my tree.  I like to use the blown glass ornaments we have collected over the years and this year I am up to 90% all blown glass.  There are about 10% that I could not bring myself not to add b/c they were too special to us.  I try very hard to have that home you can't help but want to cuddle up with a cup of hot chocolate in.  I love a somewhat "vintage" feel.

  • 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

  • Too many lights?, I need your opinion...I'm starting on my kitchen, I wanted pendant lights so very bad, so I started with the two in the middle.  They were not spaced right for two lights, so I ended up adding two more, did I overdo it?  , Kitchens Design

  • Modern Living Room - Kid Friendly!, Living room split into two areas. As you walk in on the right is where most time is spent on L shaped corner sofa. This faces a  slim LED TV, XB Kinect, WII, XBOX, DVD player etc. There is an fire also built into the wall.

On the other side two leather sofas with coffee table in middle. Music system mounted on the wall. Mostly used for guests and listening to music.

Lighting is via spot lights and one up light. Two coloured spot lights under bay window for night useage.

The flooring was a labour of love to install and polish!  All flooring on the ground level is wood parquet (parkay). Each block is about an inch and half thick. 

The French doors lead into the kitchen (not parquet but tiles on floor). These are mostly kept shut and kitchen accessed via the front landing. 

Will upload pictures of the kitchen soon…
