I will be starting 3 new packages this spring. I plan to make 1 hive 30" long, and the other 2 48'', or thereabouts. The 30 inch hive I am planning on making a super, about the size of a nuc, also with top bars, but not with sloped sides.

Has anyone tried anything like this before. My main concern in a roof, as I dont want water leaking into the lower hive.

YES, I settled for vented bars with a warre style quilt box and a regular flat roof with enough of an overhang to keep out the rain but let moisture from inside wick out.
