I don't have a permanent top for them, yet. I plan to use corrugated metal roofing, but right now I use 3 pieces of heavy metal shelving. Two upside down and one right side up to cover the seam. I'll post a drawing and picture when I construct the cover.
The same for the stand. I have the KTBH sitting on concrete blocks. I plan to drive a couple of pipes in the ground, attach two pipe flanges with short lengths of pipes to the bottom of the hive and slip these into the other pipes. This will get the hive far enough off the ground that I should be able to relax in an Adirondack chair and watch them comfortably. I have to lay on the ground, now.
