    Well, I'm certainly not going to post the interior of my shed now.

    Maybe 4AM isn't the best time of day to Post replies? What r u doing up at 4AM? I know u don't have cows to milk.

    By the way, that is a pretty hive. Where r u going to put it? The front yard maybe? Your daughter's garden? It looks like a Garden Hive to me. Not that there is anything wrong w/ that.

    Well we could have an untidy shed photo competition LOL.

    If I gave the impression my shed is tidier than Odfranks I was being misleading, I could certainly give him a run for his money.

    Looking at that Warre I don't think I could challenge him on craftsmanship though.

    The only way to have a neat shed is to throw away good stuff; not going to happen.

    The angst caused by my messy shop keeps me awake at night.

    Outside the living room window until my wife kicks it out.

    That is the hive I won in the Honey Hive Farms Raffle, they made it. I added the tiles, the windows with hardware and stained it.

    I am glad to participate and supply regular fodder for your bashing. I can supply pictures for instance of my truck that I have not washed in a year or more. Or for example, some of my hives that are 40 years old and rotting into their stands.
    Ollie,

    E-mail me pics of the rotting hives, I'll start another thread.

    I do have to wonder how more readily those octagonal hives are accepted in residential neighborhoods than plain old ugly ones. Sometimes it is not about the bees.
