New Letterbox

The letterbox that was here when we bought was never very marvellous.  Doug has just built me a new one and installed it to-day.  

Plenty of space for papers and parcels.

The old one



and "trumpet call" the new one



We, or rather Doug, still has to put the home security sign back up and do some touch up painting including painting the white pipe ebony but I am thrilled with it.  Isn't he clever.

  3. Very nice indeed. We had to switch back to a mail slot in the wall because we receive such a large amount of mail each and every day. It just drops into a large bin in the coat closet next to the front door.

    1. Here in New Zealand mail is delivered to the gate not down the drive to the house. These days, with email, I don't get much snail mail except for junk mail and the newspapers.

  4. That is very stylish and well-made. He could go into business making those. :-)
