• He began working on farms picking cotton at age eight and later chopping peanuts, hauling hay and such.
• He worked his way through college working for Kash Karry Grocery, the U. S. Post Office and the Texas Highway Department.
• Upon graduation from the University of Texas he went to work for Arthur Andersen & Co. as and auditor and then later Peat, Marwick Mitchell & Co. as a tax consultant (now KPMG).
• He later worked for a series of companies including several large homebuilders.
• He started his own company Woodmark Homes, Inc. in Houston in 1975, and over the next 35 years built volume homes, luxury and medium priced custom homes, remodeling of all kinds and kitchen and bath design and construction. He built in Houston, Austin and Dallas. His projects were all high quality. No lawsuit was ever filed over product quality in 35 years. Yet throughout the years there were difficulties. In 1986 when the price of oil dropped to $10 per barrel and Houston fell into a depression, he was advised daily by his lawyer and friend to file bankruptcy. Wuensche refused and obtained one remodeling job in Houston, one in Dallas, and one in Austin, and managed the three jobs by driving the 1000 miles per week of this Texas triangle for a year to survive his business. But to mention one success, Wuensche’s company built a large luxury home in Houston for a nationally prominent lawyer which was one of seven projects in Texas to receive a design award from the Texas Society of Architects. An unsuccessful competitor on this project later built the home of President George H. W. Bush.
