Out of all TBH designs I tried ( really small variations in hive height and bottom board width ) the design of Michael Bush is the one I am most satisfied with and is the one I will make standard in my apiary.

Thank you Michael :)

I checked out his design and it looks great. I built a much more complicated TBH (topbarbees.wordpress.com), but have been scratching my head about a "one-hour hive" in case I get a chance to grab a swarm. This looks perfect. Thanks for the heads up.

I just tried to access M. Bush's site to look at his topbar plans again and it has been down for the past few days. Anyone else having this problem?

It's working here too.

Try this....

Click start, run, type "cmd" in the box (without the quotes) and press enter.

then, in the box that appears type ipconfig /flushdns

if no errors appear, type exit to close the DOS window.

If you get an error, try this procedure:

Happy to help, nice to see it worked out for you. I work for a major computer company on 'large scale' systems, but PC's are one of my many hobbies. Basically, part of your DNS cache was corrupted or out of date. The command you entered 'flushed' your cache and forced your PC to go back to the DNS server to get good data. DNS translates 'friendly names' to IP addresses so you can enter things like www.bushfarms.com instead of their IP address. If anyone ever tells you they can't get to "XYZ" site but most other sites work, try flushing the cache first.

My bees should be here in a few short weeks, I'm sure people here will return the favor by answering my beginner questions!
