It seems to have worked decently well the last few winters. However, I noticed Dadant has a moisture control box with ventilation and a sliding front...

    I've been messing with some CRAZY TBH ideas and was hoping to get some input. Often TBH users end up wanting to expand, but find themselves with some limitations. One common solution is to install supers over their TBH. I think this is a great solution. While pondering this I came across...

    I just got started this past winter. A friend is helping me. He told me to get the wooden Pre-Assembled Frames from Mann Lake. http://www.mannlakeltd.com/catalog/page8.html They seem to be working good. This time I got these plastic frames from Dadant by mistake...
