Since I think it is necessary to have a few pictures or videos in each blog, I figure I would post a couple pictures of my hives. Also I will post my blueprint for my follower board which also acts as the internal cross-section of the hives. My main hives are only 33 inches long on the inside. And I built the hive bodies out of 2x6's.
I don't recommend building a hive with these dimensions, until my bees successfully overwinter. These dimensions are an experiment.
