We purchased our top-bar hive from you back in 2011. We gave it two coats of paint and added a metal corrugated panel over the roof to insure the hive stays dry and no rain gets in. We captured and installed a local swam here in San Diego, and the bees have been going gangbusters ever since. The bees are very happy with the hive and so are we!
Is very nice, would buy another. Be nice to have a bottom board that would drop open with screen in it for ventilation.
Perfect condition upon delivery. Well designed and an easy build. I decided to stain the entire hive and it took the stain well and now looks like a work of art. Thanks
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!
