Time for a new mail post. The big box home improvement store cut the pressure treated post for me. Dad’s electric saw would not accommodate the 4 by 4 inch post.
First I measured my neighbors’ post from the grass line to bottom of mail box.
Than I added additional 2 feet for securing into the ground.
Attaching the newly repainted mailbox was the next challenge.
Using blue colored nails, which I was advised to use special nails for wood as ordinary nails will rust, I hammered an 2 by 4 by 12 inches long wood on top of the post. This will be part of the base of mailbox.
Next after the hole is dug, filled in with leftover cement, the post is inserted. Using a beam level ensuring the post is straight.
Finally bolt the mail box to the post.
Attached reflectors for greater viability at night and if a driver as any smart ideas, cinder blocks around the base of the post.
May not be the most fancy of fancy mailboxes it is simple like me.
