CandysDirt.com: Where are you from?
Mark Danuser: I was born and raised in Columbia, Missouri. I arrived in Dallas by way of New York and Los Angeles.

CD: How did you get into custom home construction?
Danuser: My summer jobs growing up were always in construction — roofing, installing kitchen cabinets, selling plumbing fixtures, etc. When we relocated to Dallas, it was the perfect opportunity to jump in with both feet.

CD: What project are you most proud of?
Danuser: There are so many projects we’re proud of, but the home we built at 11310 Crestbrook stands out. Not only did it win numerous ARC awards, but D Home Magazine named it as one of the 10 Most Beautiful Homes in Dallas. As an added bonus, the clients became some of our closest friends and we just finished a new home for them, as well.

CD: Where is home for you in Dallas?
Danuser: University Park

CD: What’s your favorite neighborhood in Dallas to build in and why?
Danuser: We’ve done some incredible projects in the Park Cities and Preston Hollow. And, Bluffview holds a special place in my heart because the topography reminds me of my hometown in Missouri.

CD: What materials or shapes evoke your signature style?
Danuser: The key Tatum Brown signature is high-quality construction. We’ve worked with a number of architects that have brought a different perspective to home concepts – from traditional estate projects to a more modern flair. From an interiors perspective, our design team signature is creating unique homes with clean lines.

CD: What was your most memorable project?
Danuser: The most memorable project for me wasn’t actually a house – it was the entry gate for President Bush’s neighborhood when he moved back to Dallas. It was such an honor to work with the President and Mrs. Bush.

CD: How many projects reached completion last year?
Danuser: 11

CD: What have you learned about building that makes you so successful?
Danuser: We are laser focused on providing a great experience for our clients during the building process. And we don’t compromise on quality. It’s important to us that a Tatum Brown home stands the test of time.

CD: If you ever change careers for an encore you’ll…
Danuser: Right now I’m enjoying this too much to think about an encore, but I would definitely do something entrepreneurial.
