After having some experience with the KTBH, trying out a Lang Nuc, and reading some of Beekeeping for all by Abbe Warre I decided to build a new Nuc (and eventually hives) that combines the parts of each that I like. I didn't really care for the Lang but can see some advantages especially for Honey harvest so I sized the new nuc to take two Lang 5 frame supers (I've got mediums for it but it could have been any of the sizes). I really like the KTBH for the brood comb area, a viewing window, and having it up at a nice working height so I used that as the box. I like the idea of quilt boxes so I put a Warre style roof and quilt boxes on top. In order for the bees to have access to the supers I will have to make new top bars and route passages on the sides but for now I transferred one of my colonies into the box with their existing bars. When spring hits I'll start feeding in the new bars that will allow them to travel to the super when the time comes. If the bees don't like it I can skip the super idea and leave it like I have it right now (a KTBH with a Warre quilt box and roof).
