I received these photos from Don Funsch of Commercial Mill & Builders Supply. The interesting thing about these photos is not that the mailbox has been placed in front of the door, because this door isn’t a required means of egress. What makes them worthy of Fixed-it Friday (and Wordless Wednesday!) status is that the city wants the building updated for ADA and has highlighted this opening (and others) to be upgraded to the current accessibility standards – including a code-compliant threshold, ramp, and lever handle. I’m all about code-compliance, but this seems a bit unnecessary if the mailbox is going to remain.
