Philip was hired by Ed Lank in 1985 and had worked as an installer prior to doing design work. When Philip was in first grade, his grandfather built him a workbench full of sharp hand tools for Christmas and Philip has never stopped exploring his creativity. Philip has experienced all aspects of kitchen and bath design, remodeling, sales and installations. As an installer from 1985-2007, Philip’s skills include cabinet installation, finished trim carpentry, counter top manufacturing and fabricating, structural modifications, ventilation installations, residential electrical work, residential plumbing, appliance installations, drywall finishing, ceramic tile installations, various flooring installations, painting, staining, window and door installations.
During his years as an installer, Philip wanted to expand his knowledge so he shadowed his mentors, the late Ed Lank and Roland Stock to learn kitchen design and sales, evenings and weekends while maintaining a full time kitchen installation schedule. He invested a lot of hard work but it was time well spent. In 2007 Philip became a full time Kitchen and Bath Designer for Ed Lank Kitchens and has worked on hundreds of projects throughout South Central Pennsylvania (see map with pins locating Ed Lank jobs). Philip is now the senior designer at Manor House Studio.
