    Plans

    In general the plans were detailed enough to follow except for the floor/bottom plans - we still can't figure them out...how do I get more information?

    Hi Linda! This issue with the bottom boards was recently brought to my attention so we have made a clear version which I will email to you!

    Top Bar Hive Plans

    The top bar hive plans are well laid out with good narrative explanations. I look forward to purchasing some western red cedar boards and beginning construction soon.
