    I am dying to have these hives in my collection.

    All of them?
    Is there a different purpose for each style or just to prove style does not matter?

    Very dark bee.

    Window in the shed struck me as a little odd. Screened vents to keep the bees off the window? What do they do in the corners?
    It is not true that you cannot teach an old dog new tricks.
    They can learn them, they just can't do them.

    Every single design is bee AND human ergonomic and compatible to 300mm frame - of potentially different depths (just bringing this to the attention so it is clear).
    But in particular, I refer to the 300x300 vertical minis which I am excited about (hence posted here).

    The horizontals - his queen breeding business.
    The verticals - his small-scale honey business (in the conditions of low volume local flows - not a very good location for honey).
    I hope this makes sense.

    The dark bee - he breeds/sells the Carpathians.

    The shed - this is not a shed, this is an api-therapy cabin.
    He just pointed how his "api" bees winter in the cabin, and how the cabin is ventilated so the moisture escapes (not to damage the nice woodwork).

    Those look to be just like a Warre except the box height. I judge the comb to be about 80mm x 260mm. Do you know the actual frame size?
