New to bees. And, decided to build my first beehive, which I thought would be part of the fun of being a beekeeper. After doing some reading about various beehive standards, I settled on wanting a horizontal longstroth beehive. Here are a few pictures of my hive as I slowly build it. I'm building it out of pine. On two legs I put wheels to make it easier to move, since I figured it is going to be heavy, if and when I should need to move it. I also bought 7 frame flow hive that I want to build a box for that would fit on top. I've read mixed reviews on flow hives. So, I'll find out how well bees like them. I still have to figure where I'm going to put the entrance. I'm also considering what to do to reduce the chance of the hive being robbed.
