Steve Lowe, Ray Dunn, Doug Favreau, Krister Raasoch, David Weisel, Bob Miller, John Hudachek, John Herrick and Friends of Pisgah lean-to architect Kim Nilsen answered the call at 10 am in the raising of a rustic three-sided lean-to on the Dort property that lies just to the northwest of and borders Pisgah State Park along Route 63. With the help of John Herrick's tracter and Krister's pickup the rough sawn timbers and boards were moved half a mile into the forest to the site where concrete piers were set in place last month. 

The Friends of Pisgah had already erected a composting latrine on the Dort property site.  Saturday the construction of the three steps up to the latrine were completed. A source of water is close by and access to Pisgah trails is nearby, as well.
Although two volunteers left at lunch time, seven remained until the approach of darkness around 4:00.  After sills were laid on the concrete piers the floor was laid and timbers to support the roof and walls were erected.

Work will continue Saturday, November 18th at 10:00.  The goal will be to erect the roof structure, attach the metal roofing and siding.  If you are interested in helping complete the structure, bring along water, snacks and a lunch, and a few hand tools, too. A generator will be on site to provide electricity for power tools.

Access to the site is located about 2.5 miles south of Chesterfield Village or about a mile north of the Kilburn Pond Trailhead parking lot.

Entrance to the Dort property is on the east side of the highway about half the distance up the long hill that carries Route 63 south of the village. A sign will be erected to mark the short drive into the property.
