Woodenware and space.  The two big limiting factors! 
Boxes and frames when extra time is available. 

most often i find my greatest source of stress to be OPS  ( other peoples stupidity )

It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought of as a fool than to open ones mouth and in so doing remove all doubt.

The second hive tool is a good idea. So is painting them a bright color that does not blend into the grass or dirt when you drop them and forget about them.
Black and red do not show well in the grass.

Started building some boxes today bailey... Made a jig/sled for my table saw to cut out the hand holds. Actually spent more time figuring out my jig and working out my dado blades for my saw than i did actually building boxes, but i think i have a little better system now... As far as space is concerned i'm guessing your referring to land to put the bees...?... I have three acres and a friend that has 10 real close to me...hopefully the girls will have everything they need... Thanks to everyone for the advice as i know i need it... Wink
