That is a nice hive setup - I was thinking of getting more decorative and I have an idea to model one hive after my house - same paint and shutter look - I might just do that if I can ever get away from the keyboard  - lol

Great pic of the hive and Robo, it was strange seeing a photo of me in shorts that "I" didn't post lol  - Me and short and BOXERS are a thing of the past, but the shorts is still standard hive dress for me!

How much would each pound of honey cost from that hive? It sure is pretty.

Send me the hive and I'll install the log siding for $80.00 a board inch. of course I'll use red cedar to scale so it will last for years  cheesy  cheesy .
Go for it John I would like to see what you end with.

I had an idea from the roof (probably not original in consept) if you obmit the inner cover durring the summer months and created some kind of a small breezeway on the eves ( kind of what they do in some parts of the world on people houses) when the humidity rises to the top of the peek it would run down the inside and into the drainage and out of the hive.


Another suggestion for this fancy bee mansion would be air conditioning. or just put fans in the front and back to move air through. one side feeds fresh air in and the other side sucks air out.  Maybe a small Solar panel could run it all... I have seen those spend bee hive lids that run 80.00 that have a smal solar cell on them....


What about a outside light to guide those tardy bees that come stagering in at wee hours in the morning drunk on farmer Brown's Mead?

Just my thoughts.    Cheesy

I'll have to think about getting electricity to the hives with fans and welcome home light now needed.  That, and sewing up some little foot mats for wiping feet will keep me busy for a while.  cheesy

QUICK NOTE: members having trouble logging in or staying logged in - there is an announcement in the TECHNICAL SUPPORT FROM BEEMASTER FORUM concerning this...

Now... for my tread - lol. Talking about interesting things in a hive, I'm going to be adding (occasionally) a night-vision color mini-cam I have into my hives this Season. I'll set it up to refresh images on my site somewhere - give you a link later.

But I'll be interested how they react to the infarred lighting and shear fact this cam (the size of a baby's fist) is in their hive. It's focus is rasor sharp literally to the lens - I could focus on an egg with sharp detail, but I'll keep it focused to about 1/2 inch range to allow bees walking by to look focused.

I'll be doing OUT OF HIVE experiments - I want to follow a queen cell being drawn out with the cam so everyone (30 second refresh stills) can watch a queen cell being made. They assemble the images and make a short movie of it, which will look really cool in time lapse.

Just some thoughts, in a pretty active topic!

-------------------

Durwood is new to the forum and glad to see him/her active in here - the profile says STUDENT and I want you to know that Students are a very important subject (no pun intended) to me - they are the next generation of Beekeepers and a valued asset to this forum.

I have been a mentor (read about young Fred in my original logbook section - who is now 18) I have mentored him for many years. Adults can make or break the spirit of the young, and I have seen first hand how people can harm their children - treat the young with love and respect and they will become good adults you also treat the young with love and respect. There I go threading again.

Honestly would any of you pay like 1600 bucks for a hive? shocked  I'd say a few hundred is my limit.

No WAY!! You could practically buy the TOOLS to make the hive yourself at that price. Smiley

As a matter a fact, I think I did pay less than that for my table saw, chop saw, and a bunch of other stuff I bought a couple years ago. I've got pretty much a whole workshop minus the lathe. And in the end probably paid less than $1400.

For the do-it-yourselfers:
  The price of mahogony right now, is cheaper than plywood, and cheaper than cedar in some areas.  I dont know about the fancy emblem, but mahogony is sure nice wood!! (ok, now gotta say, I dont support cutting jungle wood either) huh  cheesy

I didn't see where they were selling any pricey supers. So what, you have that beautiful hive and then add the usual supers from Dadant or where ever? That would look real nice huh?
OR you don't add a super and your bees get crowded and swarm? Even better.
I think Marhta Stewart built this hive. She grew the trees her self too!  cheesy
