Although this is very true, and this is a VERY NICE picture, this is
really a remodel of the langstroth hive. Its like a frameless
langstroth. In loose terms a langstrth can be considered a specialized
top bar hive. If I were going to build something like this I think I
would stick with standard langtroth parts and just use foundationless
frames. You loose the advantages of the top bar hive, but arranging a
hive thusly, and placing the top bars with bee space between them.
