Great video. Very intriguing. May have to make one.
Thanks for sharing; nice rigs.
For sure - very nice ergo.
Former "smoker boy". Classic, square 12 frame Dadants >> Long hive/Short frame experimentation.
I just loved the first few seconds - the little guy there in the background wearing an over-sized bee-hat/veil - brilliant !
I particularly liked the style of roof you're using: looks like a neat technique. Anything special about the paint you're using, or how you've sealed the plywood edges ?
I'm with Greg on this - good to see people trying something a little different.
A nice job ...

And thanks so much for the compliment on the hives, particularly the roofs.
So yes, I have to bend half-inch plywood over the frame using cinder blocks. I then screw it down evenly on all sides.
As far as painting it, I have to tape off the cedar frame (in this case) and then add a coat of Killz Primer. Then I'll add two (possibly three) coats of latex exterior.
