A: Mountingboard, Certainly, the mounting board is included.
A: Janine, The use for a “free library” for the mailbox post is interesting but is definitely considered a custom application of the product. It has not been tested for this type of use. The only way to guarantee that it can handle excessive weight is by adding additional supports tailored to the custom use.
A: Paint, Yes this mailbox post can be painted or stained to suit your preference. Make sure the wood is dry before application. (Pour some water over the surface. Remember, if it beads, wait; if it is quickly absorbed into the wood, it's ready.)
A: USPS.com states the post should be at a height of 41”-45” out of the ground. We consulted their website and our local municipality guidelines. We needed the distance from the edge of the road also, so a state plow (to prevent it from being hit by a plow wing)
A: Edward, Use a post hole digger to dig a hole for your post at this spot. Dig deep enough that the height of your mailbox above the ground is around 42 inches. Do not dig deeper than 24 inches.
