Dear All,

I am building a new TBH this winter and would like to get some kind of consensus of whether it is helpful and worth the effort to put a screened bottom board on my new TBH? And if I do put one on, is it important that there be a hinged board underneath for cleaning. And the last question, if I don't put a screen on the bottom, can or should I just have a bottom that is screwed on and have no access for cleaning? Or should I still have a hinged bottom for cleaning out?

Lots of questions, but I felt it's better to get the answers prior to building than regretting something later.
