I am interested in TBHs. I saw a picture of one I had to have. Construction has begun. I have one side completed and am almost finished with the second side. I hope this works out. The picture I saw shows a TBH with at least one window on the side.
I had scavanged some lexan and wasn't sure what I was going to do with it.
The drawings are based on Scot McPherson's construction.
Both sides will have viewing ports, 8-1/2" x 14". I origionally planned 16" long, but when I measured the lexan, the most economical use was 14". This is positioned at the front of hive where the brood nest will be. Sliding doors will cover the lexan unless I'm being nosey.
A follower will be used since there seems to be concensus that bees get discouraged if they are presented with too large an empty space.
