” The most professional and trustworthy contractor we have ever worked with!! My wife and I have engaged Chris and his team twice within the past year — first to finish our basement and then for a home renovation project that involved, among other things, installing a master bedroom floor, extensive painting, and building out a home office and butler’s pantry. At every turn Chris has exceeded our expectations, stayed on budget and finished the project on time. His professionalism, knowledge, honesty and responsiveness are truly beyond reproach. His employees are courteous and respectful and have done outstanding work throughout our home (and we are very particular clients). We even sought an exception from our community to work with him specifically. I can’t recommend Praxis Home Builders enough! “

– Matthew Guttin

” Chris and his crew performed an amazing custom basement renovation for us – the work was amazing, his crew was professional. The thing we appreciated above all was the level of communication and attention to detail which Chris provided. We will certainly work with him on all future renovation projects!!! “

– Randolph James Sealey

” We have been using Praxis Home Builders for everything since 2010. They were originally recommended by our decorator to remodel several bathrooms which were done so well and in such a timely manner that Praxis Home Builders was the natural selection when we subsequently planned a move into a house that needed to be completely gutted. We cannot recommend them highly enough. Chris Barymow, the firm’s owner, is professional, beyond knowledgeable about most everything, in addition to having a gift for architectural design which makes the end product both beautiful and well built! The firm’s workers and subcontractors are professional, reliable, respectful and tidy beyond our expectations. We have moved into our new space with no residual problems or lingering “punch list”. We have now recommended the firm to several people and they have been equally pleased. Praxis Home Builders is an A+ choice! “

” WOW! What a fantastic Job! We recently did an extensive over haul of our garage turning into a functioning office space. It was not an easy project by any means, however, working with Praxis Home Builders made it feel like a snap. They worked with our schedule and budget and completed the project seamlessly. Chris has extensive knowledge in restoration and custom home building and it really showed while he PERSONALLY worked on our project. Working with Chris make me want to re-do the whole house. “

– Alexander Watson

“We have used Praxis/Chris for a number of years for a number of projects: from simple (tile 1/2 bath floor), to big (fundamental refresh across many sub-project: plumbing, painting, window replacement, etc,).”
“He is great. Always a great attitude; identifies solutions not problems. His subs a all great; many have come back a number of times.”

– Noelia Surace Design

“We recently purchased a very old house that needed to be completely gutted and renovated. Our decision to use Chris was a bit unusual – in order to secure a renovation loan and mortgage we needed to have a contractor identified and loan papers signed in a very short period of time. Not knowing any contractors, I called Chris on a weekend and he picked up his phone, answered my questions and agreed to meet us at house to give his opinion. He kindly signed our papers the evening before leaving for a family vacation and we had no choice but to put our faith in him. He delivered!”

– Jessica Moon

“Praxis Home Builders was great to work with. We took the roof off our ranch and had the second story framed in a month and we were able to move back in and live on the first floor at night. When we had concerns Chris listened and assured us that issues would be addressed. When anything did not follow the plan Chris stepped upped and corrected it. We have recommended him to several friends who have been thrilled with his work and we will use him in the future for our kitchen renovation.”

– Anthony

“Running a business myself, I know that any successful project always requires the right balance of speed, price and quality. Chris (from Praxis Home Builders) worked with us to achieve this balance, and his accessibility and suggestions were valuable to the process. I look forward to working with him in the future!”

– Jerry, New Canaan

“Chris Barymow and his team of professionals exceeded our expectations. Not only did they perform at high standards, they went out of the way to help me resolve other issues that arose during our remodeling project. Mr. Barymow was constantly checking in with the work being done, and with me personally to make sure I was happy with the many aspects of the project. He is a perfectionist, as I am, and addressed minor issues as he did larger one. I am very appreciative of my “new” house that now feels like a home. Thanks to Praxis Home Builders for delivering just that… quality work!”

– Ester, Westport

“Our basement remodel project was handled professionally from the time we first met with you. The detail that Chris provided gave us an assurance that all issues were being considered and we knew exactly what to expect. In addition there were never any surprises about cost, and when we made changes we were given change orders with prices. At least I know I’m not impossible to please, because you did it.”

– Margie, Darien

“We want to thank you for all of the work you did on our kitchen remodeling. From the design meeting through project completion, we felt like we knew what to expect so the final outcome was exactly what we had hoped for. We also feel that you are a professional, did quality work and listened to our desires and concerns. All of this made the experience for us very enjoyable.”

– Gary, Greenwich

“We just had our basement remodeled and I wanted to take this opportunity to say just how pleased we are with it. I expected the quality of your work to be done outstanding and it definitely was. Beyond this, however, what made them stand out in my mind now and will in the future was their kindness, professionalism, & willingness to cooperate.”

– John, Greenwich

Thank you for the awesome job you did for us and our home. You are the first company we’ve worked with that took care of our home as if it were your own. You really want your customers to be happy, and they are.”

– Larry, New Canaan

“Chris at Praxis Home Builders didn’t just add on to our house, he added on to our home. He thought of everything that would be important to our family, even if it wasn’t in our architect’s plans, and made sure it was executed on professionally, timely, and on budget. He built a master suite, a bedroom/office and an upstairs laundry room above our garage and first floor back room. He and his contractors acted in a professional manner every moment of their time at our house and I trusted everyone on his team. Chris is the the best contractor we have ever worked with to date (and we have done a lot of projects to our fixer upper!).”
