I too use the migratory lids as you have shown, with the ventilation holes and sheet of tin on top. They aid in ventilation (and when it is 41 degrees like the other day, any assistance would be beneficial) and they are easier to get off, especially if the bees decide to burr comb above the frames (I use a length of framing wire attached to two handles and pull it through from front to back to cut through the comb if this occurs). I don't use hive mats, i have enough trouble trying to keep SHB under control, don't need to give them somewhere else to hide.
The lids are easy to make yourself, or you can buy kits from most of the suppliers. I am seriously looking at the plastic Nuplas lids and bases now that they have 10 frame variety, a bit more expensive than timber but I figure they will last longer and not require maintenance.
