A friend wanted to get into beekeeping, and she wanted a horizontal hive. Her husband had some old boards, so with what I got from him, and with what I had, I made this for them. Just thought I would share.

Good luck to your neighbor, and kudos on a job well done. G

Looks nice!

One point in favor of a horizontal hive over a top bar hive is that it is possible to add honey supers vertically to a horizontal hive. But with a roof style like the one shown, adding supers would be problematic.
