White Wolf Lodge - Addition of One Temporary Canvas Tent for Linen Storage
Project Background: This action is necessary to replace the existing linen storage area at the White Wolf Lodge with rodent resistant storage areas. The current storage of linen in open air, rolling bins or brutes in the back of house area does not prevent rodent contact. Other storage areas are inadequate to store reasonable linen counts for camp use. This action will also improve public health issues related to Hantavirus exposure to visitors and staff by mitigating National Park Service (NPS) and California Department of Public Health (CDHP) concerns regarding existing linen storage conditions.
Scope of Work:
1. Construct tent with approved 12 x 14 foot print on 9 pier blocks with the minimum height requirements for Integrated Pest Management regulations using exclusion design techniques preapproved by NPS and CDPH.
2. Stairs will be open design per NPS and DNC guidelines and doorway will be outfitted with tight fitting threshold and door stay.
3. Walls will consist of 2 foot x 4 foot wood studs, 16" on center and ½" plywood from base of tent to top sill. (Same construction as in new Boystown linen tent construction.)
4. Rafters will incorporate high sierra design (i.e. one wood rafter attached to the front wall and door frame then two galvanized metal rafters and a galvanized metal ridge beam).
5. Wood surfaces will be painted green.
6. Canvas tent cover will be excluded per NPS and DNC rodent exclusion guidelines, including exterior white batten around top sill perimeter.
Delaware North Corporation (DNC) proposes to improve linen storage at the White Wolf Lodge to prevent rodent access. This would include installing one temporary linen storage tent with the pre-approved design in a preselected location at the lodge. The hut will match the Curry Village design (12 foot x 14 foot, interior half walls, battens, exclusion techniques, no wood stove, 36 inch door entry, open shelving, open stairs, etc.).
