    I was wondering ????


    Building a long medium horizontal hive and I want to place 2 supers on it.

    1) What is the width x length you need to build to accomadate the medium supers ?


    2) In the supers are people putting permacomb, foundationless, or something else ???


    Thanks

    2) i use top bars cut 19" long x 3/8" deep, lang frames either foundationless or 4.9 foundation.

    A standard 10 frame medium super is 16 1/4" by 19 7/8". My long mediums are 48 3/4" by 19 7/8"


    >2) In the supers are people putting permacomb, foundationless, or something else ???

    Yes, yes, and yes. I use PermaComb, Foundationless, small cell foundation, top bars, etc.
