Next project

My next project will be some thing like this, but with a pitched roof not flat.

(picture from - http://www.backyardhive.com/)
 18" top bars

It looks good and has large volume area inside and with the window it will cut down the amount of times this hive should need to be opened. Although I will make my version a little deeper than 10" and add a varroa tray as I believe monitoring mite levels is a vital part of pest control and should be done by every beekeeper.
