For Jason and Ngoc Harwood, the renovation of this 1903 NorthShore bungalow was a labor of love like no other.
“We had looked diligently, every day, and when we came across this house, it just had so much character, history, and uniqueness that sold us on it,” Ngoc explains. After finding the perfect home, the Harwoods got to work on renovations to transform it into exactly what their family of four needed. With meticulous attention to detail and stylistic accuracy, Jason spearheaded the redesign. “The details throughout the home are very important,” Jason points out. Most of the subtle design elements throughout the home are accurate, custom replicas of design details made famous by legendary arts and crafts architectural firm, Greene & Green – known as the gold standard of arts and crafts design. After a 10-month remodel, Jason, Ngoc, and their two sons, Baker and Connor, moved into this authentic arts and crafts-style home.
