I would move the super of sugar honey to the bottom, the drawn brood box over that, the brood box of foundation on top. Move 2 frames drawn into the center of the top box to act as ladders and bait frames for getting the bees to start drawing in the top. Put the two removed foundation frames, one to each outside position of the drawn frames brood box.

Bees will move the honey up around the brood, until they get crowded enough then they'll start drawing combs above in the top box. Once they have it 3/4 drawn, remove the super off bottom and put it now on the top of the stack. When it gets full of honey, pull it off for eating! or add supers if in good flows.
