Our story.

It began in Nashville, as many dreams do, with exactly one architecture degree, one toolbox, and one well-traveled GMC Yukon.

Art Stinson founded Trace in 1991 with little more than these three things and a vision to create beautiful spaces. Together with his business partner and wife, Martha, Trace Ventures, which began as a small renovation business, quickly became known for providing high quality remodels to Nashville homeowners.

Fast-forward a few years, and Adam Wayne is now at the helm. Adam has a passion for creating beautiful and functional living spaces and brings a wealth of knowledge to his role. For the past decade, he has overseen the successful completion of countless renovation projects, ranging from smallscale residential to larger commercial jobs. Today, Adam leads an experienced team of caring professionals that brings our signature craftsmanship to a diversified portfolio, including new construction, high-rise condo buildouts, museums, and refined commercial spaces. Regardless of the project, industry, or budget, our dedication to quality remains steadfast.
