He spent many years as a laborer, even traveling to Ohio when work was scarce in the south in the early 1940's. Dorsey started building homes in early 1944. Dorsey married Emma Lou Forrester in 1948. She was the raised in the Roy community of Gilmer County. The daughter of a scholastic farmer, they were a perfect match. They would raise three sons; Wally, Ernie, and Denny. All three would grow up in the family business. Dorsey became well known for the quality of his homes. He built hundreds of homes in and around North Georgia.
