Atlantis Homes was started by William Herrick in 1985 while attending graduate school at the University of Houston. The first homes were completed in 1985 and 86 in Taylorcrest in the city of El Lago approx. 3 miles east of Nasa. Homebuilding became a full time effort from 1986 building on average 9 homes per year.
As a result Atlantis homes Inc. has built more than 200 homes in the Houston area over the past 20 years.
