I thought I had saw a similar post on here but searching I could not find it. I was looking over the measurements of a Langstroth hive and had an idea. Has anyone ever built a hive turning the 19 7/8" to the sides then make the distance from the front to the back 32 1/2"? Basically the size of two deeps set horizontal. Turning the frames from front to back to side to side. Could use a follower board like a Top Bar hive to add or remove space. Tweeking the measurements even more two regular Langstroth medium or shallow supers could be placed on top. Sort of a Langstroth/Top Bar Hybrid hive that still uses regular Langstroth frames and foundation. I know it would be super heavy to try to move but that's part of a draw back of a Top Bar.
Do you think it would work? Has it already been done? Is there any problems with turning the frames sideways?
And yes I know I have way to much free time to be thinking of crazy ideas, LOL!
