Hello guys, Abby here! Sorry for not posting a ton! My dad and I started this project a few weeks ago and actually just finished today! About 15 years ago my grandpa built a mailbox for the property we currently live on. That mailbox was falling over and needed a pick-me-up…
So I decided why not make a whole new mailbox with even a bigger mailbox for packages and stuff!
We cut boards for the frame
Built the frame
Wrapped it in this metal that was super flexible
Covered the sharp corners with tape
Lay down a floor
Made a roof frame
Panted it and added a white “silo”
Cut roofing (we painted it black)
We then went out to our old mailbox and knocked it down…
It looked so empty
Dug about three feet down
Poured concrete and set the post
We then went back and finished all the things on the mailbox and set it up!
We cute the pole for the mailbox to sit on so it sat about 45 inches above the ground
We ran the house numbers on the pole in the ground
Power tools used: screwdriver, saw, and chainsaw. All the materials we used were leftovers from other projects. The only cost was: screws/nails, paint, concrete, numbers, and the actual mailbox.
What do you guys think of it? Anything fun or interesting you noticed?
Happy Father’s Day guys!
Abby here 🙂 I hope your day is going well! Today is the day we celebrate our fathers! Every year I always try to buy something fun for my dad! And this year he wanted…….a drill?! How is a drill exciting? Either way, my mom, siblings, and I pitched in and bought him his impact drill…
No…we didn’t get him a box of tissues too haha
He got his drill with a light haha
I know some families don’t get dad’s gifts and that’s totally alright! I just love doing it because it’s so much fun and I mean who doesn’t want to get a gift?!
Have an amazing day, y’all and stay safe! -Abby ❤
