A native of Beaumont, and the son of a general contractor, Lindy Merrill gained hands-on construction experience from an early age. His father believed in teaching his sons about hard work, so many summers were spent at jobsites performing any labor-intensive tasks his father could come up with, like trash clean-up, demo work on renovation projects, and digging ditches.
While working on his degree in Construction Science at Texas A&M, Lindy gained invaluable experience on a home framing crew in Lumberton. He also completed an internship serving on a project management team building navy barracks at the Great Lakes Navy Base. Immediately after graduating, a large commercial contractor in the Austin area hired him as a field engineer where he directed subcontractors, facilitated and tracked architect/owner communications, and commissioned completed buildings.
After a lifetime of developing a proficiency in the construction business, Lindy took the opportunity to open his own company, Merrill Builders. Starting in Lumberton in 2004, and expanding into Beaumont and surrounding areas, Merrill Builders has quickly acquired a reputation for building exceptional quality homes.
Some companies measure success based on volume of projects, awards, recognition, and profits. Merrill Builder's success is determined by each individual family whose life has been enhanced by the custom home in which they live. By building relationships based on trust, Merrill Builders makes sure their customers are satisfied long after the final closing of the project. This is the key to the success and growth of Merrill Builders.
Lindy Merrill currently resides in Beaumont, Texas with his wife Lucy and their three children. He and Lucy enjoy spending time together and playing with their kids. Lindy has traveled to Brazil and Mexico on several construction mission trips. His family loves seeing new places, often returning with fresh inspiration for home building.
