    Default OK I give up....does anyone know the site?

    A few weeks ago I went to a site that had top bar plans for use in cold climates. It was an insulated top bar hive designed for use in Alberta.
    I bookmarked the site but had computer crash and have list it!!
    Can't seem to locate it again.
    It was not a video..rather step by step with photos.
    Can anyone recall this site or search it as I am about to give up.

    Thanks.

    OMG...I found it!
    For those with any interest...the Calgary Top Bar Hive.
    Do you think the design makes sense for cold climates?

    Now..yet again...somewhere on line are plans for a top bar hive that has a wood inner liner, then foam board, then an outer layer of wood...still looking for that. Wish I had a younger memory...I can recall t he photos but not the URL

    Here is a link from a thread that has some hives built by a guy named Bogdan that are sort of what you're describing but they are long langs.

    Why don't you just move to south Texas? Bees thrive without insulated hives, and you can have all the guns you want

    Just bring a semi of Molson when you come!
