    Very cool, I really appreciate you showing the interior set up. I've always wondered how things are laid out in there. Being completely different from anything here in the US any more photos you want to put up are greatly appreciated.

    I hope that's not a power line that's supporting your aluminum ladder

    I am fascinated by any hive that lets me open the brood nest without lifting supers. I have a few details that I think I'm beginning to see.

    1) Are the frames suspended on that metal rod we see in the back (front?) of the hive? Is there another in the front (back?)?

    2) Is that a spacer across the back wall (from the point of view of the door)

    A little photo presentation.

    In the right side you see AŽ hive. Down you have queen and brood, up you have honey and between queen grid.



    Preparing "upstairs" - frames for natural honeycomb:



    And here you see how you can work. Here i am by my temporary beehouse, will start in new this year. So you just pull frame out and take a look. Just open outer and hive inner door and check what do you need. No need to lift anything:



    I will prepare this spring some detailed photos of hives and work aroud them. Maybe also some videos.

    Thank you for introducing me to this wonderful design. While looking for more photos on the internet I found the following:

    http://www.zirovnica.com/2003/cebela.../zbornik14.jpg

    If you do some snooping for photos of Slovenian beehouses you'll find some fantastic artwork on the hive fronts. So Beautiful as well as practical. To not have to lift up boxes....Yea!!

    Looks like a lot of technical care goes into the design of these beehouses. Are they sold in kits to build on site? Also - are there suppliers of the AZ beehive box that will sell into the US?

    Love the pictures, please keep them coming. It looks like you have dairy goats also? Is that an Alpine up on the hill? We raise Nubian dairy goats.
