Ken Gunrud

Ken moved to North Carolina in early spring of 1998 to pursue a career as a Scuba Instruction, there he met a contractor at a softball meeting, who offered him a job as a carpenter. Ken, having never worked in the field before, spent his last cash on all the necessities to fill a tool belt, and he never looked back. After building in North Carolina for 3 years he moved back to New Hampshire, where he grew up, to expand his skills. For over six years he worked on framing, roofing, and other homes in the Sandwich NH area. During this time, he was involved in remodeling a boat houses, built post and beam kit homes, and several custom homes. With an assortment of projects, he was able to improve his finish skills, better understand the entire process of how to build a home, from start to finish.

After being a caretaker for several homes on Squam Lake, he moved to Durham North Carolina to get out of the snow and became Assistant Director of Buildings and Grounds for a Montessori School. Later he would be promoted to the Directors position. Here Ken had two campuses to maintain, and budget for, and during that time there he built the first gym for the school. He also turned the old Administration building into a multimedia center and built the first upper school building, making them the first Montessori school in NC to have grades 9-12.

Missing his New England home, he moved back to New Hampshire, and for the last 5 years he has been tiling custom bathrooms, remodeling various properties, and building homes. Ken decided he wanted to move into the administrative part of the business, while staying heavily involved in construction, having enjoyed the construction process for many years. Ken brings his over two decades of experience and comprehensive understanding to his position of Estimator at Outside In Construction.

In Ken’s spare time he enjoys kayaking and hiking with his dog.  He is a huge Boston sports fan, along with UNH hockey fan, he tries to attend as many sporting events as possible.
