Prepare to see some burr comb in that empty space, MW. But settling the matter now will be better than waiting, when they'll have built even more burr comb in there! (Been there; done that.)

Perhaps you could clear the area for those frames you should've put in before, and put any burr comb above a queen excluder. The nurse bees should stay with the brood, but no further laying will occur so you will be able to get the burr comb out in a couple of weeks without losing any new bees. Then you can (hopefully) proceed normally.

Good luck!
