Founder Of Praxis Home Builders

Chris Barymow was working on Poland’s first nuclear power plant when the freedom movement began that led to the fall of the Iron Curtain. He had spent the first 32 years of his life in Poland, earning the equivalent of a Master’s Degree in Engineering from Wroclaw University of Technology. His specialty was power generation – both conventional and nuclear. But the freedom movement that began in the Gdansk Shipyard also ended his job and derailed his career when the power plant project was shut down. Instead of lamenting his fate, and the urging of a friend, Chris decided to move to the land of opportunity.

He found a job working in construction, and discovered, to his surprise, that he enjoyed it and found it much more interesting than he had imagined. His love for engineering gave him an appreciation of the structure and systems necessary for building… and it didn’t take long for a new passion to emerge…

The Birth of Praxis Home Builders

In 1995, Chris struck out on his own to start his own business. At first, the company was focused mainly on basic construction and remodeling services. Then, as the business grew, it began working on larger projects, including complete home renovation, and later, custom home building. Chris has been in business now for over 20 years, and is very passionate about the design and management aspects of the business. By focusing his time and attention on these areas rather that “working in the field”, it allows him to be more attentive and responsive to clients.

Chris’s practice of daily meditation eventually led him to the idea of creating a business model focused entirely on making the home construction process not only free of headaches and stress… but actually enjoyable for the client.

Chris is committed to making renovation the premier choice for home construction and renovation in the Fairfield County, Connecticut area. He lives in Wilton, CT with his wife, Eva, and his two children Katherine and Matthew. He cites the following books as major influences that changed his life…
