Don is our ultimate cabinet craftsman and brings over 3o years of building experience to Hancock Homes.  Don first discovered his passion for woodworking in the fifth grade thanks to a talented and dedicated Industrial Arts teacher. By the time Don graduated from high school in 1977,  he had already built many beautiful clocks and custom furniture pieces. 


Don became a licensed real estate broker in 1978, all the while pursuing his hobby as a furniture builder.  When his parents retired to Hancock, Maine, Don took some time off to build their retirement home. Realizing how much he enjoyed building, he and his brother Dean established Hancock Homes later that year.


During the early years in business and with a struggling economy Don also worked for West Cove Boat Yard in Sorrento, Maine and Spencer Boat Yard in West Palm Beach, Florida where he learned the art of boat building and ultra fine cabinetry.   Don is also an avid photographer and sailor.  When he’s not in the cabinetry shop, he enjoys spending time on his boat with his wife Jeri and their long haired German shepherd, Acadia.
