    Nice. Did you make the hive or purchase locally? I notice that it has windows for observing the comb building progress.

  3. It belongs to another beekeeper. This hive uses top bars. It does have the observation windows, it’s pretty neat. Because the bottom box didn’t have top bars on there when I hived the swarm the bees have already built fresh comb on the top box.
