How to build a mailbox

When we picture a perfect home, must of us always picture a suburban home with picket fence and, of course, a nice mailbox. It is always nice to have a mailbox, and especially nowadays, when they act more of a decoration than a real thing, due to the fact that we only use them to receive our bills. But, the most important thing you need to know about them is the fact that you can build one yourself, and we will tell you exactly how to do it.

First of all, you will need to make a design for your mailbox. You cause the standard design, or you could design something completely new. It is all up to you. Then, once your design has been completed, you will have to see if you’ve god all the necessary materials to make the mailbox. If you don’t have it, you will need to go out and buy it.

After you’ve made sure that you’ve got all the material, you will have to make the first cut, and usually that means that you’ll have to cut the post on which the mailbox would stand. Usually, this mailbox stands at about 1.3 m height. You have to keep in mind that at least 30 cm of the post should go in the ground. That means that you have to cut it at at least 1.6 m.

Most people pick the metal mailboxes, because metal is easy to bend and makes for a great body of a mailbox. But, the bad thing about metal is the fact that it rusts; however if you take good care of it, it could last forever. Before you start cutting, you will need to make sure that your mailbox is big enough for the newspapers to be fit in there, because some paperboys leave them there.

This is not that hard, and all you need to do is to cut it to fit the bended metal form of the body of the mailbox. Once you’ve done that, you will need to add a pin, that will help the door to be opened and closed. After that, once you’ve made sure that the doors work, you should paint the mailbox, and add your home number to it. That way, you can both decorate your mailbox, and help your mailman find your house easier.
