    Default Possible Garden Hives

    OK I am thinking of producing some garden hives and need your help. I want to make these hives to resemble real structures. So if you find a neat structure post the picture here. If I end up building any of the hives, I will post pictures. Here are a few ideas i have. Remember the structure has to be suitable to put a hive in. I suspect most of the hives will have to be single story long hives.

    Post your suggestions.

    good idea MM, seems you would want it to be easier than that above to build, why not like this bird house for martins, imagine all holes solid except for the lower center one

    Never did think about a barn since I am a city boy. I like the idea.

    There's 14000 pics here of rustic barns and such MM. Maybe some inspiration will hit you from one or two of them?

    If the authorities will not allow you to keep bees in a skep, will they allow you to keep them in the Parthenon?

    I'm thinking, if you are targeting a specific area, look around or go to the local historical society and reproduce local historical or significant structures (library, town hall, etc.).

    I was thinking of doing a long body hive and the roof comes off.
