About Merlin Custom Home Builders

Our family has been building in Southern Nevada since 1931; starting back when the Jones family settled in the Las Vegas Valley to help build the massive Boulder (Hoover) Dam. The next generation was born with building in their blood. In fact, in 1989, after spending years gaining practical construction wisdom and a belief in absolute perfection, Steve Jones founded Merlin Custom Home Builders.

Over time, the Merlin Custom Home Builders name became synonymous with fine custom home building and we are considered the premier luxury builder in Las Vegas. Merlin Custom Home Builders has completed elegant custom homes in prestigious neighborhoods such as The Enclave, Promontory at The Ridges, Tournament Hills, Eagle Hills, Shadow Creek Golf Course, MacDonald Highlands, and Southern Highlands. Our custom estates range from three-acre home sites in Southern Highlands to palatial waterfront estates on Lake Las Vegas.

Our reputation for impeccable quality, honesty and reliability has opened many doors for us. We were honored to build a home for the “Street of Dreams” at MacDonald Highlands, as well as The New American Home 2004®. We also have the distinction of building custom homes for two past presidents of the Southern Nevada Home Builders Association and for many top gaming and corporate executives in Las Vegas.

Merlin Custom Home Builders is renowned for delivering the absolute highest level of craftsmanship, is a leader in green building practices and expert in energy-efficient construction methods. We have the staff, experience and resources to orchestrate complicated design elements and new custom home technologies.

With nearly three decades of experience in the Las Vegas custom home market, Merlin Custom Home Builders hopes you will consider them to execute the design you envision.

We look forward to hearing from you.

He married Anne Rose Keegel, a third-generation Nevadan, in 1976 and they soon had two sons.
