At Avenue A, we know homes. From A to Z.

Your home is more than just your biggest investment – it’s where life happens. Home is where memories are formed and family and friends gather. Throughout the seasons, it’s where you spend most of your time and find your comfort. Although homes are wonderful when they’re functional, beautiful, and well maintained, they’re challenging when they’re not. That’s where we come in…

Welcome home to Avenue A. We’re set apart by the fact that we offer full-spectrum services for your home – from design, to new build or renovation, to ongoing maintenance. We believe the best results come from long term relationships and a deep understanding of your specific home. Serving Barrie, Southern Ontario, and cottage country, and lead by our two principals, Sarah and Josh Mandell, we have a combined 20 years of experience and we’re backed by a team of committed, considerate professionals.

  • Sarah Mandell

    After graduating with a Bachelor of Interior Design from Ryerson University in 2008 I spent 6 years honing my skills at one of Canada’s foremost interior design firms, working on high-rise residential, hospitality, and luxury private residential projects, both locally and internationally. Now, as the design principal at Avenue A, my love of design and passion for creating stylish, comfortable spaces is evident in my work in both residential and commercial projects.

  • Josh Mandell

    I began my career in construction in 2006, working in commercial property development and management. My interest in residential construction and development led me to turn this experience into a new business, while still staying involved in commercial renovations. My team of building professionals are experienced, considerate and committed to delivering quality projects.

“I enjoy every aspect of working with Sarah and Josh. They are very organized and helpful.” – Past Client
