Thx for the advice.
@Jim 134 I cant show you a pic, as i have not yet built it, but if you google it, you'll find plenty.
Basically the hive will accept Dadant type Langstroth frames....... (i intend to modify mine somewhat to foundationless)
The lenght will be 48 inches (approx the size of 3 langstroth boxes).
Maybe i should have called it a "horizontal hive" :?
@ mike bush, what depth should i use for the main hive.......... medium or deep? I know you preferr mediums in langs due to lifting issues, but a horizontal hive wont be lifted, so is a deep brood chamber better? Or would medium be plenty, as the lenght of the hive would accommodate plenty of bees?
