Hi everyone

I am contemplating building a long hive to take Langstroth deep frames (I think about 31). All the research I have come up with shows the hive being covered with lids just butted up next to each other. Wouldn't this let rain in?

I am thinking of using a top entrance as well as no other ventilation.

Am I missing something?
