His mailboxes are two-way.

Set low on an entry deck, these two-way mailboxes ease mail and newspaper delivery at architect Jim Bain's Seattle house. Mailmen and news carriers just reach up from ground level; recipients stoop down at porch level.

Bain removed the backs of two galvanized steel mailboxes by drilling out rivets. He removed the door from the box intended for newspapers and mounted it at the rear of the one for mail, using small stove bolts in the drilled-out holes.

Lag screws through the sides of each box (tightened with a socket wrench) secure them between porch wall and stair rail.
