siding mount, not octagonal?
 
I've got some exterior lamps I'd like to install on cement lap siding. I do not want to use the typical Arlington octagonal or round mounts. I'd prefer something rectangular, as that's the shape of the lamp base. I'm not having a lot of luck finding anything like that. Any suggestions?

Lumber yards, box stores all sell Cedar mounting blocks in a variety of shapes and sizes or you can make your own easy enough.

My local Lowes carry a rectangular one that has the built in outlet and there's also a panel that can be snapped over the box that makes into a jumbo for larger carriage style lamps.
