Re: Hybrid KTBH/Warre/Lang Nuc
If one builds a long lang and plans to super it and during winter use a quilt box would not be appropriate to simply build a box the equivalent length of 20 lang frames with 2 supers on top (you will "waste" the width of 2 frames for box walls..or you could build the bottom brood box 2 frames wider. Put on double inner covers and a single cover. You put a hinged sbb with tray below.
I would be aiming for minimal lifting, adequate brood space and good honey production.
I guess in short looking to keep brood in the bottom with lighter honey supers above.
Would/could that work?
