    Default Well I have it almost figured out.

    Well decided to go with the Langstroth 10 hives from the beesource homepage will also be making my own frames as I have the wood and enjoy the crafting . I will also be going foundation less on the frames. Now I need to decide what to do for bees and see if I can find someone local to sit in on for a few days/weeks

    very sound plan there, best of luck to you. i would lean toward bees adapted to your local area. the folks you find to observe should be able to help you with that.

    I know you want to be foundationless, but my advice would be to have a little bit of foundation in there. They need a way to climb up and build comb down. I think you might have some wax that you have to cull if they don't. I hate to see wasted comb in a new hive.
