Knowing what I know now I would make a tanzanian style thats the one that has straight sides rather than angles sides and I would make them fit langstroth frames deeps preferably. That way if I had a weak colony it would be easy to boost it with a frame of brood from langs if you have them. But also since TBHs are not common you could easily start a new hive buy buying a nuke and a nuke as a rule is stronger than a package. And in a short period you could work the frames out by placing empty bars in between the frames till they were on the out sideof the brood nest then they fill them with honey. I like the looks of the kenyan hive to me it's more pleasing to the eye and I own a few but the tanzanian hive offers a few more advantages. It's even a little easier to build since it is all staight cuts. But the ability to switch back and forth between equipment is a real plus. In beekeeping uniformity is a real pluse and cheaper to since you can use what you have laying around since it is all the same size.
