The Story of Blackstone
Blackstone Services was developed with several principles at the forefront of what Blackstone Services represents as a Oklahoma City carpenter. Service is a key motive for us.

We set out from the beginning to share the successes and challenges of all involved from employees to to customers equally. Blackstone Services is guided by the belief that to make a difference we have to be different. After years of seeing less than desirable business practices; such as putting financial goals before people, or personal gain before collaboration, we knew there was a better and different way. Blackstone Services will continue on in a better way by adapting to those things that oppose our values and also overcoming them in such a way that we are left alone with our values fully intact and effective.
The story of Blackstone Services is holding to an enduring and effectual purpose to find a better way and go in that way as a Oklahoma City carpenter.
Here we share what our values mean to us, how we prioritize them, and how we apply them in life. Honesty is somewhere at the top of Blackstone Services list of values. We believe your Oklahoma City carpenter should be honest and maintain integrity in all things. And integrity is valuable in maintaining many if not all other values. When we can be honest we maintain an integrity of trust even when we cannot maintain the integrity of our promises.
Teamwork is another core value for Blackstone Services Oklahoma City carpenter. Teamwork for us means sharing the successes and shortcomings of one another so that weaknesses of one become the strengths of all and the successes of one become the victories of all.
Commitment is a value that we see raises expectations and develops trust. And it means being honest in what we say and honest in what we do. It is important for your Oklahoma City carpenter to be committed.
Sacrifice for us is a value to serve others interest above one’s self. Sacrifice means giving up something that we did not intend to so that we can maintain trust, promises, and services that have become more demanding of us due to unforeseen Oklahoma City carpenter challenges.
Character is a value of ourselves and others in regards to what we mean to each other. We believe recognizing the character of others and showing the appropriate character to others is necessary to making honest expectations and commitments of each other.
Quality to us is a value for durability, functionality, customer satisfaction, and overall positive impact of our products and services for all involved.
Excellence is a value for growth, reinvestment, recommitting, and pursuing greater challenges and rewards.
Faith is a value for a creator and authority over our lives and all things in them. We believe that God is the explanation and source of value created into things like honesty, loyalty, and compassion. Science gives no explanation of why these are valuable other than to place value on when and what positive outcomes they produce cause another positive outcome, that causes another, and another until death or an earlier negative outcome.
Blackstone Services values the principles, motives, opportunities, and outcomes of God through faith. We believe that our greatest value is given to us by God. In fact, Jesus himself was a carpenter, but not an Oklahoma City carpenter. And that is is best to have our motives, and understanding of that value to be judged by God rather than ourselves or any other person. When we have faith in ourselves or others to establish value in things those values change as our motives and opportunities change. When we have faith in God to establish the value of things He changes us and our motives and opportunities. God’s values become a solid rock we can stand on and our motives and opportunities are always successful when they align with God’s purposes.

About Our Owner, Stephen Lockeby:
About the owner! I Stephen Lockeby want to share some of the experiences in my life that are significant to me. I believe these experiences impacted who I am to others. I was raised in a hard working family. My father worked in many different construction trades and even had a successful dog training business. I can remember working with my dad on construction sites and the dog training field, probably before I knew how to read!
We relocated to work a farm when I was in grade school. I believe growing up on a farm with no electricity, phones, and such was a significant learning experience that most people do not have the opportunity to share. I learned a lot about hard work, opportunities and the importance of the outcomes resulting from our motives while growing up on a farm.
I’ve worked most of my life now at thirty three years old; and having worked full time since fifteen years old and years prior unpaid. I’ve had brief jobs in janitorial, landscaping, and others but have mostly worked in construction as a Oklahoma City carpenter. I had worked in residential construction for about seven years. I then went to work in commercial construction for about seven years. During my career in commercial construction I completed a degree in emergency medical sciences and worked just over a year as a paramedic just before starting Blackstone Services in 2015. I’ve recently returned to a more rural living situation after having lived in the Oklahoma City area for about seventeen years.
I have two Dobermans at home currently. These Dobermans do not make a good Oklahoma City carpenter.
Also I have multiple near death experiences if there is such a thing as almost dead. You’ll have to ask me to hear about those though.
