Double Mailbox Post from Cedar Tone Wood in Wheaton

Here is a double mailbox post created from cedar tone pressure treated pine 4×4 and topped with 2 Architectural Mailboxes MB1’s.

We also provided 2 temporary mailbox in a buckets for this address as one of the addressees was at fault for knocking over the original post and they did not want to delay their neighbor’s (or their own) mail from being delivered while we were waiting for JULIE to come and mark the utilities for digging. The original call came in on a late Wednesday and because JULIE requires 2 business days to respond we couldn’t install until the following Monday. They were charged a total of $450 for the post, the boxes and professional installation with cement including the service call and use of the temporary mailboxes.
