I have an eight-foot ivy-covered privacy fence along the front of my yard,
with entry through a gate. My mailbox is on a post on the street side of
the fence. I would like to find a new mailbox, one that could be placed or
fashioned so as to be IN the fence, with one end on one side of the fence
and the other on the opposite side, with a closable door opening on both
ends of the mailbox. That way the mailman could put mail in one end of the
mailbox and I could go outside in my pajamas or a Zorro costume and get the
mail without having to go out to the street side of the fence.
I've googled my index finger off looking for mailboxes, manufacturers,
custom designs, etc., without finding anything like what I've described.
Does anyone have a suggestion? As to building (or having it built) myself,
I've heard there are Postal Service regulations about mailbox size,
capacity, construction. Is that true?
