    Default Horizontal Hive Out of Scraps.

    A friend wanted to get into beekeeping, and she wanted a horizontal hive. Her husband had some old boards, so with what I got from him, and with what I had, I made this for them. Just thought I would share.

    That is beautiful!
    It takes a family to raise a family, it takes a village to really screw that up... Djei5

    Looks nice!

    One point in favor of a horizontal hive over a top bar hive is that it is possible to add honey supers vertically to a horizontal hive. But with a roof style like the one shown, adding supers would be problematic.

    Yeah Rader. I figure if it got to the point of adding supers, I could come up with some other covers.
