Praxis Home Builders - Design-Build Services Fairfield County, Connecticut

Praxis Home Builders was created from the ground up with one purpose in mind: to bring serenity and sanity to home building / home remodeling by offering a level of service unmatched anywhere else. With over 20 years of experience in the home construction business, founder Chris Barymow is committed to a philosophy of complete, total service.

We believe you’ll agree with our philosophy of staying on the good side of karma and most of all, that you’ll be excited about our 5 Steps To Home Construction Zen.


Living In Harmony With The Universe. We Believe In Fulfilling A Mission - Not Having A Vocation.


Ours ... and yours.

There’s no reason to create unnecessary stress - one of the key reasons we developed our 5 Steps To Home Construction Zen. We’ve structured our entire business to remove as many headaches as possible from your home building / remodeling experience.

We also refuse to take on more work than we can comfortably handle. We believe in doing an honest day’s work in a day - no more and no less. We schedule our time carefully to ensure there is time to do things right the first time... which is how we stay on schedule while staying sane.


We believe the natural order of the universe is abundance... and that more abundance naturally flows to those who unselfishly offer more in value.

That’s why we strive to offer more in value than the cash we receive. We believe that by doing this, the universe will reward us with greater abundance and many fulfilling relationships that extend far beyond the typical client-vendor relationship.


We believe in the law of karma. Everything and everyone is connected. Whatever you send out into the universe always comes back in equal measure. Which is why honesty and integrity are very important to us.

It’s just simpler to be honest... and it’s more rewarding in the long run.

Former Engineer Discovers The Joys Of Building.

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...

  • Lessons Of The Lotus by Ghante Y, Wimala
  • The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles
  • The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
