I am looking at replacing my brass mail slot with something a little more fitting for my Eichler. I can find plenty of nice mail boxes but no slots that seem above ordinary. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?
Thanks in advance
I had taken a look there. Most slots seem to be Victorian or just kind of generic - the Ives models are an example of this. Looking for something with a little more oomph. But not silly looking.
This might be a tall order.
Anyone know what or where to find the USPS rules for mailboxes online-ie when is it OK to have the door slot vs. when you must have a box accessible for curbside delivery. Strangely enough the USPS website has none of that info. at all. That info. must be online somewhere.
It is my understanding that the post office requires boxes on the street for all new construction. The mail slots on the house are grandfathered exceptions and not possible on new houses.
If you check with your local postal sub-station, they can tell you what the rules are locally. I've learned that requirements are at least partly local...in one area I know of, new construction not only requires accessible boxes, it requires they be clustered at certain points for a number of houses instead of on each house. The local head guy would know.
