    are you asking about a swarm box since cells can be started in any size box?

    ususally when someone sezs swarm box... I think a half size box (capable of holding 5 frames made from a one foot board (which is actually more like 11.5 inchs in width). you could of course build a swarm box using illinois depth or shallow depth frames. so a swarm boxs is typically you standard depth box plus 2 inches (added to the bottom of the box).

    The Spivak manual has the plans as you probably know. What is wrong with her plans? I built the same one and it works really well.
