  • 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

  • Fun in the Sun... Sun room / Family room, We own a historical home (174 years old) that we have been restoring for almost 3 years.  I wanted to create a space for our 3 tween boys to play their video games and a place for our 3 yr old to romp on the floor with a ball or a doll.  This space is bright and sunny and the furniture is covered with removable slipcovers for easy cleaning.  I made all the slipcovers, valances and pillows.  , Living Rooms Design

  • This Young House's Sunroom , By far the best room in the house our sunroom had potential from the start. Three out of four walls boast huge glass windows for perfect spring breezes and stunning views. Pulling up the ugly (and smelly) carpet from the previous owner was the first thing we did and then we stained the concrete floors in a warm tuscan gold color. To see "before" and "during" shots of the transformation visit www.thisyounghouse.com., Living Rooms Design

  • Sunroom Addition, This is a sunroom addition built between our home and my Mother-in-Law's garage apartment.  Now it is one big house.  She can open her pocket doors in the morning and close in the evening.  The dogs can come and go through doggie door outside or go to grandma's when they want.  We still have our own spaces but can still keep an eye on each other.  Works out wonderfully. Working on trying to get picture to show on web page?!!, Porches Design
