Kevin honcho'ed the
project to replace the Salt River Mailboxes. It
was quite the challenge
getting everyone to agree with the new boxes and
pay for them. Chip and Gary helped Kevin
pour the concrete pad and install the new boxes.
These are our old mailboxes. The doors were
falling off and they were getting hard to open.
Kevin had the old mailbox moved so he could form up
for the pad. This was done on Friday to minimize
It was a bucket brigade to fill the
protective poles so no one runs into the mailboxes.
A ladder came in very handy for this part.
Then it was time for the
flatwork. This part went pretty well.
Gary had his helper assist,
which was handy since he was the only young one there.
Kevin floated it and later it was backfilled around the
front and back edge to make sure we had a smooth entry.
Here are the
before and after pictures. Our new mailbox has a
place for packages which is way cool!
Chip and Kevin relax at the boxes, waiting for folks to
pick up their keys, and to make sure no one drives on the
pad prematurely. This
is for the personal use of our friends and family. If
