Shared Driveway House Number Solutions: How To Prevent Your Packages From Being Delivered To The Wrong Home

Shared driveways often present difficulty in finding your home for package deliveries, visitors, and first responders.  At Comfort House we are frequently called upon for an address sign solution for such situations, and many of these are customized for very specific needs.  For example, we just completed a custom solution for which the client’s packages were always being delivered to the wrong address.  Rather than use one of our more typical shared driveway house number signs like in the illustration shown below, the client had a tree he wished to affix the sign to.

                                        Shown above: Shared Driveway House Sign # CRDA

For the tree the client desired the house numbers to be in a vertical orientation with arrows pointing towards the respective address.  We presented two options; one with the arrows beneath the numbers and one with the arrows beside the numbers.  Our recommendation was for the arrow beside the numbers to be certain to get the directional message across and the client agreed.  Since it was just a single digit house number we were able to make the numbers very large without increasing the size of the plaque. 

Rather than our typical corner holes for normal surface mounting or holes patterned for a lawn stake, we made two small nail holes at top and bottom at the client’s request.  The final job was very nice and clean as seen in the above illustration and gets the job done so that parcels are now delivered to the correct house.  If you require your own shared driveway or multi unit address sign solution, please contact us at
