supering a TBH

I built a top bar hive from plans at Mother Earth News. I thought I could use a 10 frame box with foundationless frames and super it. I just realised the bars in the super would be at an angle to the top bars (DUH). Is this a problem? Or should I get a bottom and do another hive with the boxes?

long ways or cross ways healthy bees are ok with it. leave out the front or back 3/8" spacer for communication. you can also leave a gap between two bars but expect some "burr".
i suggest letting the bees fill out your main body because around here once the bees have a place to build up they ignore the horizontal.
