If you're building a new fence or wall, it's a great time to think about where you would like your mailbox to be. Do you prefer it on your porch so you can reach it easily? Or is your daily walk to the mailbox somewhat of a treasured ritual? If you fall somewhere in the middle, building your mailbox into the wall around your home could be the best option. It will blend seamlessly into your home's construction, and you'll still get your daily walk.
