My long hives tend to be minimal and simple. But that’s not the only way to make them. They can be beautiful, even complex. And yet, still functional.

Check out this modern adaption of a traditional European long hive. It accommodates standard Langstroth deep frames. And has a neat hinged, ventilated cover.

I suspect this hive is as much fun to build as it is to keep bees in.
