We have been in our new home for a couple of days now and still can’t believe it is our home! We love everything about it and truly can’t express enough our gratitude and appreciation to everyone at Merlin Custom Home Builders. The place is not only beautiful, but functional for us and our family. Our kids came to see our new home for the first time yesterday and they love it too.  You delivered everything we could have hoped for and more. Thank you so much!
Mark and Jennifer Williams

What a wonderful journey we’ve had with Merlin, building not one, but two dream homes for our family in the past 19 years. Irene and I are very fortunate to work with a professional, yet personal, custom home builder who not only collaborated with our architects and translated their visions into our dream homes, but who also stayed on schedule and finished the homes in the time promised.

Duncan and Irene Lee

I cannot imagine a better home building experience than what we experienced with the Merlin team. We absolutely love our new “forever” home and thoroughly respect the job done by the onsite leadership of Lloyd and the support provided by the Merlin team. We also appreciate knowing that the team will be there to support us for years into the future – something we have heard consistently from your growing list of very satisfied homeowners who have been fortunate to work with Merlin. Please know that we stand ready to provide very positive references anytime you feel that it could be helpful.

Don and Dee Snyder

Anita and I wanted to extend our Thanks and Gratitude to all of you for participating and executing a wonderful and beautiful regeneration of our home.  We are happy and comfortable. In fact, Anita walks around saying  “I love this house”.  We have had few to no problems so far, which to me is very unusual in the complicated process of completing such a project. You should be proud of what you have done for us and particularly what your team has accomplished.  You’ve earned your reputation and you deserve it.  Please don’t be strangers. From our heart to all of you – Thanks.

Merlin Custom Home Builders was the perfect home builder to transition our vision into reality…professional, skillful, flexible and honest.

Barry Shier

Our Park Towers’ home is as close to perfection as one can get. Your work and the outcome – these many years later – far exceeded expectations.

Michael and Sonja Saltman

Building our home was an absolute please with Merlin Custom Home Builders. We are still thrilled and delighted 12 years later with the quality of work and the care and thought that went into the construction of our home thanks to Steve and Bart Jones and the Merlin Custom Home Builders team.

We are about to start on a remodeling project and will, of course, using Merlin Custom Home Builders. We wouldn’t consider using anyone else!

Robin and Danny Greenspun

It has been a thrill for us to work with you guys. Our dream home has exceeded our expectations.

Howard and Suzie Lederer

All our experiences with Merlin Custom Home Builders have been outstanding. Before, during and even after extensive construction and enhancement work, Mr. Jones and his craftsmen have performed and completed all work with excellence and skill. Subsequent work required was not questioned, and completed without extra cost or dispute. Honorable people make a difference and they have earned our trust.

Betty and Irwin Helford

Fran and I want to thank you and your organization for another fine job. Often times your work helps to beatify some ones world. Sometimes your work actually changes people’s life for the better, as in this case. It is the way that Merlin Custom Home Builders puts it all together that sets them apart!

Our sincere thanks,

Michael & Fran Coleman

Merlin Custom Home Builders built my home over twenty years ago and it has stood the test of time beautifully. They have also built homes for my extended family and close friends. We wouldn’t go anywhere else! The key to their success is that Steve and Bart are 100% honest and trustworthy. They do the project right and follow up for years after to ensure homeowner satisfaction. Truly a remarkable company.

Thomas Thomas

I intended that my home be built with the highest quality material installed by experienced craftsman who would create a home exceeding my expectations in beauty, form and function.  Merlin Custom Home Builders did just that!

Tom Barrow

Speaking of appreciating things, I would like to thank you and Steve for the way this was handled. I wish it could have been done faster, but that’s over now. It’s done, and your company handled it like…well, like it should have been handled, but usually is not, if you know what I mean. Lloyd of course is practically family by now, but the surprise was Larry. Man, this guy was good…no, great. He noticed little details, and took care of everything! He even helped clean up, and vacuumed the floor! He was a great representative for your company. He tried to give Steve all the credit for the final design, but I’ve got a feeling it was a collaborative affair. It really looks good, and I’d be pleased to show you the finished …well, the almost finished product. (You’ve met Claudia, right?)

Again, Merlin Custom Home Builders did magic! Thanks!

Ken Wolt

SIX STAR RATING . . . Cannot speak highly enough about Merlin Custom Home Builders. Hired them to turn an empty grey shell penthouse unit overlooking the Las Vegas Strip into my dream home and they exceeded my very ambitious and challenging expectations. Their work in my residence has been featured in the New York Times, various custom design articles and just about every major Las Vegas magazine for it’s attention to detail, creativity and customization. Give Merlin Custom Home Builders the highest grades in craftsmanship, cost-efficient problem-solving and “can-do” attitude. Doing it right the first time was my mantra and they fulfilled from start to finish. Aside from their on-the-job performance I was most impressed with their service and integrity. They were always readily available, accommodated my every request and made me feel as if I was their only customer. It’s been three years since the completion of my project and they still are available to me for adjustments and repairs. When an occasional mistake was made or deadline missed they were open and forthright in sharing the situation with me directly. Never had a doubt in their honesty and continue to be comforted knowing they stand by their work and are committed to ensuring my satisfaction. They are great people who do great work. Would trust them with any project I have in the future.

Benson Riseman

Merlin Custom Home Builders, principals Steve and Bart Jones as well as all the staff, are the team to build your dream home or do remodeling.

I don’t think you could find anyone else with as much knowledge of building, flexibility in execution (even in difficult locations and conditions) or patience with clients. They will truly make the building experience positive.

Dr. Michael Detmer

I was fortunate enough to have my beautiful home built by Steve and Bart Jones. Throughout the entire process, which many people led me to believe was going to be long and arduous, I felt so comfortable with the process and knew that I was in the best of hands. It was joint project where my needs were of primary concerns and quality was mandated at all times. The result was a house that is a showstopper but more importantly, a comfortable home. Thank you Steve and Bart and everyone at Merlin Custom Home Builders. I would do it all again but I don’t plan to.

Diana Bennett

It’s always a pleasure when you work with professionals and get a finish product that comes out far better then expected. I love my new home, and thanks to the team that made it all happen.

Jack Bergman

I have spent the last year working with the Merlin Custom Home Builders Team planning and designing my home. I cannot say enough good things about this company. Steve and Bart Jones are incredibly warm, kind men who lead a wonderful team. Steve helped me stick to my budget and offered great advice on communicating with the architect and interior designer, using his experience to guide everyone in the right direction. Bart is incredibly encouraging and patient, always available with answers to questions about the process and how best to proceed. Every employee has been knowledgeable, professional, pleasant to work with, and very quick with their responses. The team at Merlin Custom Home Builders have hosted meetings with contractors, negotiated on my behalf, paid meticulous attention to detail, and even administered first aid when I injured myself right before a meeting! Merlin Custom Home Builders has made a very involved and complicated project feel fun and exciting. I have every confidence in Steve and Bart Jones and their team. I look forward to breaking ground and seeing my dream home become a reality.

It has been a pleasure working with your team and we hope to continue to work together. We value the professionalism and care taken by your team while completing the unit modifications. We have you on the list to provide to any residents wanting to complete unit modifications, as your work has been impeccable! We truly enjoy working with your firm in the building. Please contact me directly if I may ever be of assistance.

Merlin Custom Home Builders has been working in One Turnberry Place Condominium on our largest unit for the past year. I cannot express enough how professional they have been during their time here in the building.

Their supervisors, and workers have consistently gone out of their way to make certain that they follow the rules and regulations of the building. They have made a point of keeping in close communication with both management and staff, and make certain that while they do an excellent job for the homeowner, they cause no undue burden to any other owner or resident.

As a building manager, I would recommend them without hesitation. They have not caused any unnecessary issues for our Association, and have been a pleasure to work with during their time here.

Sharon C. Taggart-Preiser, CAM, Executive Manager, One Turnberry Place Condominium
I would like to give my highest recommendation on behalf of Steve Jones and the entire Merlin Custom Home Builders Team. Merlin Custom Home Builders has successfully completed several homes at Park Towers over 10 years during my time as General Manager and for the past year at One Queensridge Place. Merlin Custom Home Builders’s staff has always been professional, courteous and adhered to our rules. It is a pleasure to work with them and I have never received any complaints from Homeowners regarding their operations or workmanship.
Ken Hicks, General Manager
Merlin Custom Home Builders is the best luxury home builder in Las Vegas. Steve & Bart Jones natives to Las Vegas bring over 25 years of experience to the construction industry. They do not just build houses, they make your dreams come true and they craft one of a kind homes. I had the opportunity to work with them a number of times over the years and can attest to their dynamic quality and attention to detail, and they are able to build anything your design team can dream up. If you are looking for the best and want your project to be unique, call Steve Jones. His construction team will make it happen. Highly recommend!
Ellen Garland, R. Thomas assistant

I can’t say enough good things about Merlin Custom Home Builders. Their staff is extremely friendly and professional and their dedication to each one of their projects past, present, and future is unmatched. Many builders will separate themselves from a project after the final inspection but Steve and Bart stick with you and provide excellent service if further issues pop up, big or small. Their attention to detail is extraordinary and they have an amazing ability to turn even the craziest ideas into beautiful reality. If you’re thinking of building a custom home and you want it to be perfect then Merlin Custom Home Builders is the company that should build it. No question.

Brian Miller, Riseman Chef & House Manager


I have been a subcontractor in the Las Vegas Area for 20 years. There are few General Contractor’s that have made it through tough times, and the ones that have made have done it for a reason.  Merlin Custom Home Builders is a top-notch professional outfit that requires subs to be responsive, on time, quality & service driven. Because of these traits we have been successful in the projects we have worked on for them.  From the bidding process to final walk-through, it is always a pleasure to be on their jobsites and with their staff. Always professional & courteous. I cannot remember a “stressful” experience working with them.  We at Silver State Specialties, LLC look forward to many more years of building luxurious homes in the Las Vegas area with Merlin Custom Home Builders as the General Contractor.  Personally, I would not hesitate to have Merlin Custom Home Builders build MY dream home! Hopefully one day down the road I can make that happen!

Our relationship has spanned many years and we truly enjoy the partnership that we have.

Mueller Turner Company has been fortunate enough to have worked for Merlin Custom Home Builders for many years as one of their custom cabinetry subcontractors. Steve and Bart Jones always represent their intent with integrity and professionalism as do their employees. They demand top notch service and quality from us and they will settle for nothing less. We can depend on them to provide us with good communication flow of accurate information throughout the course of each project from the earliest stage of bidding and construction to completion of our installations. We work with esteemed general contractors from coast to coast and internationally, Merlin Custom Home Builders is worthy by comparison.

Mueller Turner Company
Merlin Custom Home Builders, our customer for more than 17 years, is a pleasure to work for because they understand that the final quality of a building project begins while the project is still on paper. They work out design and installation requirements, methods, schedules and coordination between subcontractors during the planning stages of the project and employ superintendants that pay attention to details and understand the construction process from beginning to end. The office staff keeps the administrative portion of the projects running smooth. Our company specializes in Custom homes and small commercial and has been licensed in Nevada since 1979. We appreciate the effort that Merlin Custom Home Builders puts into making sure that their projects run efficiently. This effort makes our job easier and the overall effect is superior quality and value for the project owner. Based on the high quality standards placed on their subcontractors and building experience and practices, I highly recommend Merlin Custom Home Builders.

The Merlin Custom Home Builders team, from the office to the field are all very professional and pleasant to work for. They follow the rules and expect us to do the same. When it comes to the contractual part of our agreement, they dot all of their i’s and cross all of their t’s. We have never had an issue with getting paid, they always pay on or before the due date. Merlin Custom Home Builders Superintendents are the very best – they keep their job site clean and neat. Their timeline is always exact. They demand perfection.
