About Lee Dodson


Lee W. Dodson is a retired general contractor in Los Angeles, California. Raised in Texas, a true son of the South, he traces his lineage, on his mother’s side, to the Skiles tobacco plantation in antebellum Bowling Green, Kentucky, and on his father’s side, to
the Lee family of Virginia and is rumored to be from White Wolf from the Comanche Territory of northeast Texas.

After a collage career of colleges, Dodson moved west to work in the motion picture industry first as an assistant “whatever,” then as a commercial producer, then as a motivational film producer/director while simultaneously mounting music concerts and promoting television pilots under the banner Idea Express and Forerunner Films. He invented the miniseries and held rights to Steinbeck’s “East of Eden” for two years until it was handed off to another company.

In 1970, Dodson re-invented his career by becoming a rough-frame carpenter. Not satisfied by the quality of the foundations for his hillside projects, he apprenticed for Saxon Concrete in 1980, and in 1982, he added hillside foundation and concrete skills to his repertoire. Concentrating on limited-access and hillside, he honed his trade to produce better quality and higher efficiency crews further enhancing his ability to turn quicker turn around on construction in high risk locations and difficult environments.

Dodson’s knowledge and expertise in caisson and grade beam construction equals any in California, and he is widely considered an expert in deep-hole placement, post tensioned platform, and in place high-pours.

Dodson has a reputation for being an innovative planner, an inveterate researcher, and a tenacious objective-oriented, highly motivated individual who consistently presses for higher quality and time pressure results without sacrificing the safety and well being of his subordinates. He motivates by example and leads with respect.

Dodson has been responsible, either as prime contractor, as supervising personnel, or as on projects ranging from $50K to $10M from the early 70s through the 90s and into the new Millennium. He has produced over $60M in projects since 1996.

Dodson owns thecontractorsside.com, a trades-person oriented dispute resolution website, and is currently mounting a multipurpose website skoshitiger.com, with one side aimed to assist and advise tornado, flood, fire, earthquake destruction homeowners, the other side devoted to major federal property development.

Dodson has appeared on numerous web-based construction/business programs and has been published in various construction magazines i.e., Buildernews. He has served as an expert witness and consults on construction and foundation issues.

Four screenplays:

Here In The Light
The Laughing Gas War

Review by: Richard McClellan on Dec. 17, 2012 :
The plot is kind of interesting. He takes you into the mind of a dog and a horse.

But.....The editing is horrific. I think this is a rough draft. you get stuff like "XXX leanedstood against the wall". Apparently the author types two words that he might use and plans to take the wrong one out later.

You also get a couple versions of the same paragraph, one after the other.

You see this stuff multiple times per page, even per paragraph, sometimes sentences. Irritating in the extreme. To the point I don't know if I will make it through or not.

I am giving it one star instead of none since a) it was only $.99 and b) it could be decent if cleaned up.

Stuff like this shouldn't be "published", even in ebook format.
