In our rural area we are required to have our house number clearly visible at the road for ambulance and fire reasons. I can only claim credit for the wooden part of this. The actual plaque is made by a small family run company near Vancouver BC and is a a modern incarnation of an old English cast iron sign. The wood is clear Western Red Cedar. The pieces that hold the plaque lie in slots cut in the posts. They are tongue and grooved together, the overall aim being to allow for seasonal movement due to humidity and other moisture (commonly called rain !).
