A Personal Note From Jerry Hankins
My wife, Linda, and I started Hankins & Associates, Inc. in 1992 with a commitment to do high quality work for our clients. Since then, a lot has changed in the world, but our commitment to the highest quality remains. We take great pride and delight in the work we do, we are committed to our community, and we treasure family and friends.
Growing up in Central Bucks County, I learned old fashioned values including working hard, providing good products and services for people, being honest and forthright with others, and living by the golden rule. After graduating from Central Bucks East High School, I enlisted in the US Army and proudly served our country in the 82nd ABN. When I returned to the community, I was trained and gained extensive experience in designing and building kitchens, which I have been doing now for more than 30 years.
We are blessed to live in a great community and proud to be a vibrant part of it. We tend to work with people who are rooted in their own communities and who take a long-term view on their home and the community in which they live. When possible, we prefer to work with other businesses rooted in community rather than dealing with distant, uninvolved organizations.
Our clients tell us time and time again just how important their kitchen is for their family. We truly believe that the kitchen is the heart of the home. In our own lives, we know that the day begins for us and our two children in the kitchen. Much of the day revolves around it, and our family time in the evening is often spent in and around the kitchen. We know it is the same for many of our clients.
If you’d like to talk with me, feel free to pick up the phone and give me a call at 215.794.5930. I look forward to a friendly conversation about your kitchen ideas.
More Than Just Kitchens
In addition to creating great kitchens, we also help clients with new bathrooms, libraries, home offices, media rooms, and a variety of built-ins throughout the house. If you have an idea you’d like us to talk with you about, just let us know. We love taking on creative projects, such as the ones featured below. We’ll be happy to talk with you about turning your dream into a reality.
We also provide kitchen and bath consultation independent of our design services and other product offering. We’ll assist you with the material selection and acquisition of cabinetry, flooring, counters, backsplash, appliances, sink equipment and more that you provide. We can also provide consultation on your installation. Our fee-based consultation is charged hourly and invoiced on a monthly basis.
Capable Cabinetry Options
Once your new kitchen is designed, it is essential to select cabinetry, countertops, flooring, lighting and plumbing fixtures, appliances and décor that work best for you. We will help you find the right balance between your needs, desires and budget.
As part of our commitment to our many clients, we offer a broad selection of quality cabinetry that meet a range of budget requirements. We proudly offer outstanding cabinetry such as our very own Bretonwoode Bespoke Cabinetry, as well as other capable selections. We also offer some very affordable options that we believe are better quality and less expensive than those sold by the big box stores.
Our goal is to provide the best values available to all of our clients, whether they are looking at the finest custom cabinetry or budget-priced selections.
The Shop Kitchen and Bath
Having been a dealer for various mid to high-end production cabinet manufacturers over the years, Jerry had a hankering to build cabinetry in-house, controlling the process, ultimately being able to provide homeowners hand-made quality, using quality materials for less than the big (bigger) boys. In 2015, The Shop Kitchen and Bath was born. The Shop is a step-saving, custom cabinet and woodworking shop that delivers high-end capabilities, to include our very own Bretonwoode Bespoke Cabinetry.
