We've looked online for the top bar hive we would prefer, and I think the Warre is the one I can handle well. My issue is all plans I've seen online are in metric... I'm having conversation issues. Anyone have plans in inches? Any suggestions for the best plans to use? Does anyone prefer a different top bar hive over this?

Also, we're thinking about adding a viewing window on the hive. Good idea? Workable?

I have posted the Warre plans on my bee wiki in American measurements if you are interested.

I have a book written by the creator of the warre hive (people's hive). It explains alot of the things one would want to know about beekeeping with this hive. It is a translated version (french to english). I got it from http://www.groovycart.co.uk/cart.php?c=533&p=28713.
