    I’m a brand new BeeKeeper, and I don’t want to buy my Langstroth Hives. I
    agree with you. Building them myself has a variety of advantages. By the
    time I factor in the time spent buildinging the hives, the cost is nominal.
    The biggest advantage is the fact that I built the hives with my own two
    hands. I stayed home and did something useful that I can point to later.

    I have plenty of framing/construction experience, but you didn’t insult me
    by covering every detail. I’ve been out of the construction trade for a
    couple years. Maybe I forgot something. The upside is that I still have my
    saws and my tools.

    Any concerns with pesticides/chemicals that are commonly sprayed on pallets
    in close proximity to the bees?

    My favorite times are while in my shop. Sometimes I’m not doing anything,
    but just being in my shop is good enough for me. Nice work gaining those
    pallets for wood. They actually look real nice.

    Nice project and great use of materials, my only quibble would be that I
    don’t think you need the plastic foundation. I believe you could save oil
    and money by leaving it out altogether and letting the bees build their
    own. Check out a few sites on the web and see what you think. I watch old
    Black and White films when I’m working!!! All the very best from Normandie,

    Looks like you’re going into mass-production mode. If there’s a rafter
    manufacturing business near-by, they toss out a ton of end cuts and don’t
    usually mind if you raid their scrap bins, (as long as you ask, first).
    Nice project. :)
