  • Abbey's PlayHouse, We designed this bed to help maximize space, and give my daughter a fun and creative playspace. The stairs lead to the actual bed with drawers built into the stairway. The inside of the playhouse has her play kitchen built into one end and a chalkboard on the other end. The room is painted with an outdoor theme which includes larger than life flowers, a picket fence around the room, a tree in one corner, and simple valance over the window., Girls' Rooms Design

  • A Little Girl's Dream Come True, We live in a townhouse, so outdoor space is limited.  I wanted a place for my daughter to be able to play inside the house where I could keep an eye on her.  Inspired by a Pottery Barn bed design I found, my father helped make this dream come true for our little girl.  It's a loft bed with a playhouse underneath-- hand crafted and designed with love for a little girl!

  • Loft with slide, I really wanted a loft playhouse with a slide for my preschool. I searched and searched for one that met my space specifiactions with the slide and playhouse apart of the theme. i couldn't find one that met my needs that was under 2,000 dollars. . So I investigated plans online and decided I could make one myself! I spent less than 300 on materials and went to work! I love the way it turned out! I scored a great accessory detail with the adorable "porch lights" at the dollar store! With the helpful folks at Lowes and google I made this cute playhouse that my preschool class will love! , Girls' Rooms Design

  • Little Girls' Cottage , my husband built this playhouse bed for our 2 1/2 yr old twin girls.  It is a Queen size bed up top for them to share and a playhouse on the bottom.  They love it.  I have had a great time making their house a home.  I added an address and a street sign as well as a street light to make it more real for them.  It is not quite done though.  I have some painting to finish and I haven't found the right fabric for the bedroom window yet.   Any suggestions? , Girls' Rooms Design

  • 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
