I like doing cut-outs, but I love catching swarms!

I would love to show you my honey house but I don't have one right now. Well, my wife would beg to differ!  grin 

I usually don't keep up with honey demands but more and more people are asking me for honey and my list of regulars is growing. I really need a heated honey house so I can have liquid honey available throughout the year.

So I would love to see some of you member's honey houses with any specifics you might care to share. I guess we all get to this point eventually.

Small or large, I would love to see pictures or even a video of your set up.

Thanks for any/all participation!

My suggestion is to find a restaurant to sell honey to.  As part of the deal, negotiate to use their kitchen as your honey house.  Then you don't have to build a honey house, heat a honey house, or meet state food processing inspection requirements.  Everybody wins.

That's exactly what I've got.  I just used it to bottle up a few 1# that a couple people ordered.  I used to warm them up in the oven until my wife accidentally turned it on to make the kids lunch.  Burned honey stinks is hard to clean out and cost over $500 to replace the burner.

Yeah, that's what Bailey does, I think I want something bigger though Big Daddy. Really need something bigger.

I'm pretty sure Danno has a good sized house he could show us.

Thanks RDY-B, nice operation. Would love to see more pics. So would you mind mentioning some of the particulars of the building?

Current heating system, interior wall material (galvenized metal?) floor, etc...

Thanks!

JP, I thought you seen mine while you were here. Most honey houses around here are about the same.

Iddee, I did see it but never entered it, besides it was pretty darn cold when I came up your way. Have you been using it? Can't remember if you still do or not.

Definitely no mold issues cuz the roof is likely ventilated well after Jp's hunting trip.

That's downright impressive. 

My "honey house" is my 3 car garage at this point.  I store everything offsite.  I then get large clean cardboard sheets from where I work that are to be recycled and cover the floor.  I trailer the extractor, uncapping stations, settling tank in (3-miles away) and roll them in on the cardboard.  I extract, wheel everything out, stack up the cardboard to go back into recylcling, hose everything off, re-trailer and haul back to storage.  It's a full day but at this point I don't have the volume to justify a true honey house.

Good one Iddee, you got me, even though I could have sworn there was something in your yard that looked like that.  cheer

No, Iddee doesn't have to worry about theft - just tipping by teenagers.

Rdy-b  that's real nice - maybe some day.  (Dang, just recently got over my tractor envy, now I have honey house envy to replace it!  And I don't even have honey to need one yet!)

I grewup using one them, a two seater. In the summer when it got hot and dry honeybees would always be hanging around in there.

Chris, you come down with your woodenware, give me a hand with some cut outs and go home with new hives. That goes for anyone who would like to play with some cut out bees.  grin
