If you copy the link and paste it into the address bar, delete the second instance of "http//" and then proceed, it should work fine.

It's a form of top bar hive.

Looks like a dodgy imitation of a top bar hive. Worthless pile of junk. (in my opinion)
All setbacks are temporary

It's simply a modified Lanstroth hive, made longer to hold more frames.  Nothing new or unusual about it.

Looks like a horizontal / long hive.  I want one.   :)

Last year I built one of these hives for myself, and the rest of them are regular hives.  The reason why I like this one is because I can inspect this hive in no time.  As soon as I open it, I get to see the whole picture, everything is right there in front of me.  I also made a little window on the back of it.  Great job and you should definitely give it a chance.  You can also go to this link and take a look at mine.    Beekeeping(End of August)

Hi Ivashka,

 I showed my hubby so I could badger him into making me a replica as a trial BUT all he did was go on and on about all the purlins GGGRRRR

Nice set up too!!!
