my hive is 47 in long 31 top bars @1.5 inch plus 1/4 at each end. i use 17 in bars and 5 in across the bottom.
thay are working on the final plans. thay will be FREE, thats right FREE so give those guys a few weeks and thay will be done.
Sounds like those plans will use the same measurements as my hive, for which free plans are already available here - http://tinyurl.com/ycsx3w5

Do your vented top bars have edges to maintain the proper spacing, or do you need to space them yourself?

Also on your non-angled-sided hive, is it just basically a long Langstroth medium in dimension? Can I put a medium frame in it with spacers glued on? I have a lot of medium frames with comb on them--some with honey.

Thanks!

Ellen

These plans are based on my own measurments and designs the overall hive style is nothing like yours any similarities are because we worked together and collaborated for so long. The differences between the two are far greater than the similarities. Keep in mind 99% of the NBN FAQ I rewrote from James Satterfeild's site with his permission and 99% of of the procedures and manipulations credited to "The Biobees Team" I wrote myself as a matter of fact I still have the original versions. Some of the refined versions are even published on many sites including Beethinking.com.

Thats ALL I am going to say on the matter don't expect any replies
