When they get the first brood box about 80% full add the next brood box.  What size supers are you using, 8 or 10 frames, medium or deep.  When they get comb built and start filling toward the sides swap the outside frames with the ones close to them.  Bees don't do the outside frames sometimes.  Good luck with your bees, Colins.

Agreed; Go slow, read everything.

GOOD LUCK!
