Good show.  And very good presentation of TBH plans and construction.  I clicked it as favorite for reference on building a TBH plan I got from Hi-Tech.

I wish i had put a window in mine now.... Its a lot of trouble to check on them and that would be great for a quick peek...
Beekeeping and hunting.... Is there anything else?

Thanks, Brian.
Hi-Tech, I didn't think it would work as well as it does. I had the material and used it. I echo your thoughts. I haven't had to open the hive at all and I was able to be as nosey as I wanted without their being disturbed.
I probably won't put two windows in them in the future, but I will definitly put in one.

One window gives plenty of light. I just won't be able to see both sides. What I have seen from one side has been a mirror of the other so far.
