Hurrah! The post box holder is done and up. Before we clip the excess chains we will make sure that the height is acceptable. We measured it at 40 inches. As Dale pointed out,anyone could come by and steal the mailbox. A thief could steal nearly anything. I am excited and happy that the box turned out well. I can't wait to see how it holds up against the winter plows!
The second picture is the before picture. The small box was dented to the point the that the front barely stayed shut. The holder was rusted and the bolts that held it together were bent. Now everyone on the road has the old boring dented boxes and I have this really cool one! My nephew, Nickolai, helped dig the hole and put it up.
