This was a straight forward project completed in a few days. One of cedar and one of pine to see which the bees like best. Plans are on Youtube under Jon Peters Top Bar Beehive build.

Nice looking beehives. I will have to check out the video. Do you have bees currently?

I do have two traditional Langstroth Hives. I am trying to lean towards more natural and organic type of hives. The information I can find suggests Top Bar Hives are healthier for the bees, but honey production is about 20% less than standard hives. I am just a hobbyist so that is just great with me! Thanks for asking. Mike
