He received a Bachelor’s degree in Construction Science from Texas A&M in May of 2002 and was immediately hired by a construction firm in Austin, TX. Two years later, he founded Merrill Builders. He began contracting one home per year and quickly expanded throughout the Southeast Texas area, broadening his portfolio. Since 2004 Lindy Merrill has taken pride in building each house with attention to detail from beginning to end, and in ensuring that all of his homes complement the unique lifestyle of each family. He now resides in Beaumont, TX with his wife and five children, and partners with families to make their visions become reality.
