    Default OH newbie questions

    I'm working on my first beehive and I want to make a 4x2x1 (deep body) frame observation hive(OH) similar to what the pacific science center has (had?).
    http://pacscilife.blogspot.com/2010/...winter_10.html

    I have a few questions though since I've never kept bees before.
    Is this a reasonable general layout? Is it big enough?
    do bees need to be kept in the dark? ie should the windows be covered when i'm not looking inside?
    If I keep this in my garage will the warm temperatures keep them too active during the winter?
    What about car engines and other noises in the garage will they be bothered?
    Is it big enough that I'd eventually be able to harvest some honey/wax?

    Thanks for the help.
