Very good overall. Assembly was very easy. Roof ridge board was warped, but a replacement board arrived within 4 days. Shipping was unbelievably fast. I did,however, reinforced the roof with a 1 x 2in straps in the middle. I also replaced the hinge pins with machine screws and nuts for sturdier operation. Overall, everything looks works great!
We purchased one of the original Bee Thinking TBHs. It has been going strong for 7 years and we have been very happy with it. What we are looking for in our next hive is a horizontal Langstroth with cavity dimensions that will accommodate Flow frames for easy honey extraction. Please consider building a horizontal hive that will accommodate foundationless Langstroth frames and Flow frames... It would combine the best of what top-bar and Langstroth hives each have to offer!
The hive is beautiful, looks lovely. It was easy to put together. Leveling was a breeze. Although, it would be nice if the veiwing window was optional.
This hive is amazing. It is really well constructed and very easy to assemble. I (and my bees) love how versatile it.
