I had enough and finally tackled our mailbox project yesterday! Although, nice to have a mobile mailbox during snowstorms, it was very unsightly. The biggest challenge with mailboxes on our street is snowplow damage. I suspect a combination of angel and speed, mixed with heavy wet snow, and many a mailbox is destroyed.
Step 1, cut the black top sidewalk -
Step 2, dig the hole. Three feet down and add a couple bags of concrete -
Step 3, fill the hole mount the mailbox and add some reflectors -
Step 4, have Emilie customize my finish concrete work -
Hoping the slim, narrow pole will be less of a target and will withstand what's thrown at it. However, the heavy plastic mailbox is another storm but one that's now easily replaceable if\when necessary.
