I happened to stumble into some free lumber I have enough to build 10 to 15 TBHs and a few 6 bar nucs. So what I want to know is what would be the ideal design. Looking for ideas and /or improvements on previous designs.

1. side or front entrance, top or bottom?
2. SBB or Not?
3. Different size bars for brood nest as opposed to honey?
4. Flat or sloped roof?
5. 22.5 degrees or 30?

Also I have 3 military foot lockers I will make into long hives and I am open to suggestions here also.

Procrastination is the assassination of inspiration.
