What people are saying about Atlas

“These three gentlemen came up about 7:30 and it was like watching one of these old flickering shows where you see a little bit of this and then the next scene it’s a little bit different, then the next scene it’s a little bit different. That’s what I did- I walked passed these patio doors and every time I looked there was something else done. It was amazing to me to see these three gentlemen working together, they didn’t get in anyone’s way, they didn’t fuss with each other. They were professional, they left no trash whatsoever, and they finished about 5 or 5:30. And I love it! I love that building.”

Craftsmanship Rooted In Texas

Atlas Backyard Sheds is a three generation family owned and operated company with over 36 years experience designing quality sheds, cabins and other outdoor living products.

If there’s a backyard shed in Tyler, Texas, chances are it was built by Atlas Backyard Sheds. For 36 years now, three generations of the Downs family have been transforming backyard spaces into living spaces with the construction of sheds, garages, decks, fences, patio covers, hot tubs, pools, and other small, custom-built-buildings.

Since the 1981 founding of the company in Tyler, it has since expanded to nine different locations throughout East Texas and the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, including two dedicated spa showrooms in Tyler and Plano. In fact, the company has grown so large that in 2016 it created a separate division for luxury hot tubs called Atlas Spas and Swim Spas. Atlas is an authorized dealer of Master Spas hot tubs and swim spas, including the official Michael Phelps Signature Swim Spas.

The backyard-focused company was appropriately launched in a backyard itself. It was behind the house in Tyler, Texas, where William F. Downs, Sr. and his wife, Shirley Downs with the help of their son, William F. Downs, Jr., began commercially building sheds. At that time each shed was primarily made of metal – built 100% by hand, all nails and no screws, which was a time-intensive process. The company was called Atlas Portable Buildings then, and as consumer demands and tastes have changed, the company has continued to evolve to provide all the elements that make suburban life. Today, Atlas Backyard Sheds are the backyard professionals, providing shade, cool dips in a pool, relaxing hot tubs and swim spas along with any size custom building.
