Re: New Hooser beekeeper getting started
Have you considered a horizontal hive?
Easy to build, can be used with just top bars, or if you size it correctly, could also be used with Lang frames. Since you haven't decided between a TBH and Lang yet, this lets you get started and be able to fairly easily convert either way, once you have some experience.
