"Themis and reBuild were fantastic to work with. We heard so many horror stories about projects that ended up double the timeline and double the price; Themis, Peter and their team kept those nightmares from being our reality. Thanks to their careful management, we ended up finishing the project right on budget and nearly on time - seemingly unheard of in New York City renovations. Even more vital, Themis was as concerned as we were about the small details along the way, and as a result, we ended up with high-quality construction. We couldn't have been more pleased with our experience and final product!"Juliette W., Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY
"I was more than pleased with reBUILD’s work at our apartment. Very challenging in its scope, the work included an insertion of a connecting stairway between the two floors, as well a new exterior deck. Because it’s a historic building, we had to get approvals not only from the Building Department, but also from the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Themis and his team were very knowledgeable to the process, and led the job efficiently and effectively – from the beginning to the end. The finished work looks really great, it was overall a very pleasant experience and I’d highly recommend them to any one."Linda S., Brooklyn, NY
“The reBuild team did a great job for the renovation of my landmark townhouse in Prospect Lefferts. Hired them from the beginning of the project, they assisted enormously in setting up the expectations, exploring alternate solutions and studying their impact both on the space functionality and the overall budget. Themis and his team successfully managed to lead the construction and move the project ahead without surprises, and at the end – most importantly- completed it on the agreed limited budget, and on schedule. By the way: their kitchen cabinet maker was phenomenal. I highly recommend them.”Nick B. MD, Townhouse in Prospect Lefferts, Brooklyn
" I contracted Themis' team during the summer to renovate my condo, including installing new flooring, shelving, and expanding the closets. The end results exceeded my expectations and my home not only looks excellent, but is much more usable now. We actually had specific requests on how to build out the apartment, but after in depth consulting with the team, they recommended much better options and now the place looks much more aesthetically pleasing than before! I am extremely happy with the quality work and the open communication throughout the project. Having worked with other contractors before, the biggest problem is always the lacked of communication leading to a sense of distrust. There was absolutely no such feeling with the A+ crew at reBuild. In fact all the craftsmen were a delight to have around, especially Jimmy and George who both had a great sense of humor and many wonderful stories from all their years in the business. Lastly, I cannot stress how impressed I was with the respect they gave our home. Each time I would return to the condo to take a look at the progress, I would find everything meticulously covered, taped up and treated properly. Even my super commended their professionalism. I highly recommend rebuild and will certainly look to them for my future projects."Calvin C., Condo apt in Long Island City
" I have worked with Themis and reBuild Workshop on a large renovation of my brownstone. ReBuild listened to my concerns and dreams and worked with me to create a beautiful functional home. They will be my “go to” for any projects in the future. I know that if I need them they will always be there."Gail S., Brownstone in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn - as it appears on Houzz.com
"We hired Themis and his team to renovate our townhouse and are very satisfied with the completed work. All members of the team are very professional, trustworthy and competent. Themis is very responsive and knowledgeable with all stages of the renovation process. He was able to navigate through the landmark process with ease and we always felt confident and comfortable. He was very creative in solving problems and respectful of our budget. I would definitely recommend him and would work with him again."Marina T., townhouse in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn - as it appears on Houzz.com
"It was a pleasure hiring Themis's firm to renovate our non-landmarked 16' wide brownstone - He is punctual, pragmatic, creative, resourceful, quick to respond to emails, and has a spooky ability to get workmen to show up. Despite a minor hassle getting the permits, our renovation finished basically on time and on budget. He loves to get things done, communicates clearly through words and sketches, and will cheerfully scramble up on a ladder to demonstrate how to do something, like some kind of nimble Greek mountain goat. We are so lucky to have found him and we love our beautiful and airy new house."Karen K., brownstone in Park Slope, Brooklyn - as it appears on Houzz.com
"We had rebuild workshop design/build our kitchen and had an extremely positive experience. Themis, the owner of rebuild is super knowledgeable, always easy to reach, has great ideas, good taste, patient, and an all around nice person to work with. His team / builders did very precise and clean work. Furthermore they were efficient and really stuck to their schedule and budget. I HIGHLY recommend them! Our kitchen turned out great and is our favorite room in our apt."Pauline S., co-op apt renovation in Brooklyn, NY - as it appears on Houzz.com
