Conrad Construction was created in 2015 by myself, Patrick Conrad. It was a culmination of many years working in the field as a sought after carpenter and project manager. As a child, I was close to one of my uncles who worked a s foreman in a veneer plant. At the age of nine my uncle brought me to the plant and showed myself and my brother around. I had the oppurtunity to operate a giant lathe in the saw mill. It was an instant excitement that sparked a lifetime of working with my hands and a career as a builder.
I spent my teenage summers working various labor jobs. Landscaping, window demolition and install and as a laborer for a local electrical utility. The time I spent working in these fields was hard work but also extremely enjoyable to me. I attended some college but ended up going to work in a lumber mill and before long I was a certified lumber grader. After a few years I went to work for a Portland Lumber company as a warehouseman. After six months I was a counter salesman and not to long after, I became the lead counter sales and a backup contractor salesman.
