There are many more artistic projects that Mitch has done. His website is www.mitchafied.com. To contact Mitch, you can email him at
firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 818-317-4768.
Mitch and his wife, Dynnel, are in business as Watts Specialties International (WSI) (General Contractor's License #878908).
When asked what does WSI does, the usual response is "What do you need?" He can do anything.
I am very proud of his abilities and his integrity. I've done really well in not messing him up when he was growing up!

These above are projects I helped Mitchell (WSI) on recently. The top left are boxes made of "Ironwood" which is very dense and hard. It
is stained just a little bit and sealed. On the top right are boxes made from mahogany. I constructed these entirely. They are stained or
sealed as the client was going to redo the fence that's behind them and paint them the same color. I hope they don't as the wood is
beautiful. Scroll down for many more :-)
While this may not be artistic, it's interesting to me. In the top left here, you can see concrete below the steel cage area. That concrete is
in a hole four feet in diamenter and was originally 27 feet deep. See Brandon in the hole, click.
The steel that you see
coming up and bent over
is 1.25 inches thick!
There are ten vertical
rods in each of the back
holes. There are a total of
Two were 27 feet deep,
four were 24 foot deep.
These six holes took me
and two helpers over two
months to dig by hand
with shovel, jackhammer,
rope and buckets.
On the right, you see the
back right corner of the
cage. It's about twenty
To the left, you can see
me and Brandon
lowering the cage over
the verticle steel rods
down onto the concrete
piles that sink deep into
the ground below.
To the right, is a simple but very
sturdy shade structure. Each
wooden post is mounted on steel
footing that are deep into the
concrete below the paving
stones. Brandon & I constructed
this structure for Mitchell who
designed it. It's in Burbank, CA.
Below are concrete supports for
a 3 story chimney. Below that is a
view out the finished windows.
I'd like to promote my son, Mitchell, and his work. Not to mention that I do a lot of it
myself working with him, Mitch has some of the highest standard I have ever seen.
Sometimes I really think he over does it. But the customers love the superior quality.
They KNOW if Mitch did it, it's GREAT! Click on any of the below to take you to an
