I have built about 10 top bar hives in the past, but someone is special-ordering two hives from me of which they want a more fancy
roof style than what I'm used to building.

I'd love to see photos and explanations of all of your various roof styles out there. I tried to do a search for roofs and I couldn't find a thread dedicated to only roofs.

Specifically, what the lady wants is this:

A slightly pitched roof with white wood shingles. In fact, she wants the entire outside painted white.

If anyone has any input on such a roof or other designs, it would be much, much appreciated.
