About Jennifer Howard & the JWH team

Jennifer W.  Howard, founder and principal designer

Jennifer Howard founded JWH Design & Cabinetry in 1996, in Rye, New York. A business degree in marketing, a natural ability for design and architecture, and first-hand experience in residential construction became the foundation of her business model. Projects ranging from multi-unit condominium projects to multi-million dollar custom homes in Westchester and NY (and now across the Eastern seaboard and West Coast!) bear the mark of her designs and cabinetry. Jennifer & the JWH Team have transformed hundreds of ordinary houses into stunning homes that have also been featured in local house tours and publications.

Jennifer’s design knowledge is not just a product of her work experience, but also her own personal experience – she lives in Rye, New York with her husband of 31 years, five children, and one grandson. Their family has moved more than 25 times throughout Westchester and Fairfield counties, after designing and renovating their own homes. Jennifer knows first-hand the importance of efficient design, careful planning, realistic budgeting and timely execution.

In addition to Jennifer’s design, space planning, and cabinetry expertise, the JWH team offers a range of additional services that include architectural and engineering (through licensed professional referrals), custom millwork, plumbing, electrical, stone/tile, and interior design services.   Rob Howard handles the Construction Management services and provides a turn-key construction project from start to finish.  JWH understands how to pull all the decisions together that reflect each Client’s needs, offering honest and unbiased advice, while always respecting the overall investment parameters for the project.
