I like it, looks like the old Post Office in Devils Lake, ND that they turned into a musuem, I would guess that there was one basic design for Post Offices of that period

Sometimes people should not say anything since their money didn't pay for it. Look at how the stars spend their money on houses, but everybody thinks they look so good. So what it use to be a post office. A building can be anything you want it to be. IT'S YOUR MONEY TO DO WITH IT WHAT YOU WANT.

You had me going with it until you told me it was a 1 bedroom 4 baths, I hope the owners knows what happens when you convert something without function utility.

Creative and I admire the workmanship. But, having done something like this myself. When they go to SELL... what will thier comparables be? Unless there are many such dwellings nearby they wont likely get anywhere near thier money out. Voice of reason...

This looks just like the post office in Centralia, WA. I think their twins and the one here is for sale also!

it seems a waste to have only one bedroom and 4 bathrooms. Whatever will she do if she has kids or if someone were to visit. Otherwise very Kool

The USPS does deliver to every physical address in the country... and truth is the USPS gave it's package business to UPS because they couldn't handle the logisticcs of it... Today there is a newly created business agreement between the "big three" that actually "shares" the responsibilities of moving small packages (spr's) and yes next day overnight!! The on time capability is actually equal to and in some cases better than Fed Ex... That includes tracking and signature confirmation for about half the cost... Don't buy into all the negativity that is floating out there... The USPS is still working hard to be better and flow with new technologies! Send your Mom her birthday card this time... We deliver for you!! Or maybe try to send it earlier next time instead of the day before?

When private companies take over who do you think will deliver that small town ? not enough profit for a private company there. Unlike private firms the postal service is required to share all it's wholly owned things such as years ago it had electronically transferred mail but had to share that with everyone because of antimonopoly laws.Uhm, Someone, did you know that UPS and FedEx were started because the USPS could not deliver packages next to Anywhere USA? There isn't one single physical address that UPS or FedEx would not deliver to. Therefore your logic is faulty. Now they may reject a request for an early AM delivery next day depending on location, but suffice it to say if you order something from Amazon and want it overnighted to your home in BFE Arizona, it WILL get there next day.
And for the record, the last time I tried (and paid for) using USPS special service - Next Day Air - to overnight a late Mother's Day card, it didn't arrive until three days later. I have not used the USPS since that happened about four years ago for anything other than the occasional birthday card for a loved one as usual. I will only rely on UPS and FedEx (in that order) for any special shipping requirements, and that definitely includes ordering online. And I sure don't miss the long waits in line either. the USPS, like a lot of other outdated government entities, needs be disbanded and be cast into nothing more than a footnote in America's past.

Great. Gee, might be a way to consolidate the USPS if anyone could get a job...........and a mortgage.

We must keep our national postal service but the service needs new management starting at the top.
