Ryan, the basic structure is very simple, but effective. I too was impressed with Bill Henning's Christmas Tree display a few years ago, but that is way more effort than what I would do. Yours is more doable in my opinion. Did you build it so each layer can be easily taken off for storage? I would have to consider off season storage since we are just about packed out in this little house even though our daughters are grown and married. I don't know how we fit them and all there stuff here come to think of it.
