Hello from a Newbee in Raleigh, North Carolina!
I have been reading the forums for six months and think it is about time to jump in. What a great bunch of people! Thanks to all of you who have so generously shared your knowledge and experiences here on beesource.com. I have learned so much by reading the threads but the most important thing I have learned is that I have sooooo much more to learn...which is what, I guess, fascinated me about beekeeping in the first place.
I have built one Kenyan TBH 44" long with 19" top bars, a consolidation of several plans from the internet, and will be making another one in preparation for my first two packages of bees this spring. (see photo...still need to put aluminum on the roof). Comments and suggestions are welcome...especially before I build another one!
I hope to hear from some other TBH'ers in NC who can provide some local expertise. The local beekeeping association seems to be mostly Langstroth people.
