I think of my dad as a fairly accomplished welder, he’s made several of his own farm implements, tools, panels and gates for livestock, making your own equipment has it’s advantages. Over the last 50+ years every once in a while we stumble upon a project where my dad feels it’s best to get a professional to do the welding. Craig Stokes takes what we consider a difficult project and completes it with ease.
It’s certainly not our preference to put wear on tear on other peoples hard earned equipment, if we borrow something we like to return it in equal or better condition. We consider ourselves very fortunate that our neighbours allowed us to borrow their earth mover for this development of A Stones Throw RV Campground. Before we use any equipment we first conduct a full service ensuring all joints are well greased, tire pressure, hydraulic this and that to name a few…
A Stones Throw RV Campground now has 3-Phase Power and Fortis is done their work, the poles are standing straight and the vault is in place. Within the campground there are five Kiosk/Transformer locations and typically they would be situated on top of a concrete pad. Issues can arise from concrete due to settling earth or needing future access to underground cables. Rather than contend with these issues we created metal bases that will sit upon screw piles, no concrete required! Welding the bases was not without skill and effort!
Needless to say we’re left feeling pretty humble when you see what a professional can do. We’ve got a few more future projects with Craig Stokes in mind but first thing is first, we have to get this place open. With the help of professionals like Craig Stokes we have no doubt this dream will become a reality.
