The day begins with laying out tools and materials, de-nailing the scrap wood, cutting to size, building templates and general tea consumption:
With time moving on the old ones burn the midday oil, supervised by the next generation, as its all hands to the pumps:
But some still find time for a brew!!
Mid afternoon and final assembly of the modules is zipping along, almost like an industrial assembly line. Note that four of the six 4' Chandler hives are fitted with perspex 'windows'.
And by the close of the day we had 6 hives, and Pete's 10 bar special, completed - a very productive and enjoyable day and many thanks to Alison and family for putting up with us.
And look who got the halo!!
Roofs are being built tomorrow (Saturday 20th at Alison's again), all welcome.
