Building a Horizontal Top Bar Beehive

Today we began to build one horizontal top bar beehive which is also known as the hTBH. It is inexpensive and easy to manage. Bees thrive much better in this type of a hive since they have the freedom to build the combs as they please and have as many drones as they please and they get most of their honey as their winter food storage. In comercial hives its the oposite. For more info on TBH please visit BioBees. Myself and Jan are building the hive. Others got different tasks.
