    My husband wants to get back into beekeeping this spring and wants to do so with top bar hives. Anyone know where we can find blueprints to build our own? He's handy enough to manage but needs a place to start!

    Thanks bee people!

    My sister and I are going to try and make a top-bar hive and get bees next spring too! I'll see if I can find a few of the helpful sites we've looked at.
