Warre Bee House Takes Shape

The first photo shows the eye screws set at each corner to enable connection of a 4 arm lifting sling.

This next shot shows the Bee House in position sat on 4x4 skids and concrete blocks. It had to be positioned in it's spot in the apiary as it was getting too heavy to move.

This photo shows the position of the cross bar over which the lifting sling will be put. It doesn't perhaps look like it but it is positioned exactly so that the sling comes down half way across the warre boxes.

Here you can see the slots cut into the front of the bee house. These slots will correspond to the gap in the warre bottom board.

Each slot will have a front porch type entrance which will be shown in the next post.
