Sarah’s new house is coming along nicely and will be finished after the first of the year. I want to make her a mail box to set by the road (some sort of masonry…maybe even built using ferro boat building techniques…you know, plaster over chicken wire form)

She wants to name her drive Brittaney Way as a comment on her late daughter’s penchant for having her way no matter what. The house is not visible from the dirt road that passes and I’m trying to come up with a design inspiration…

Anyone got any ideas?

Yeah, I left that one, ah, wide open.

I googled masonry, brick, concrete mailboxes...most of 'em look like tombstones.

that's the problem...all those McMansions have ugly mail boxes in front declaring to all and sundry that the home owner has zero taste

Musta been a real hardtail dude. I don't think that one would Pan out, but maybe a few Shovel marks? Wonder if his dog is a Springer?
