There is no standard for the dimensions of top-bar hives. The
dimensions of mine are typical -- about 40" long, 19" wide, and 10"
There are some members of the Utah County Beekeepers Association
(www.utahcountybeekeepers.org) who have top-bar hives. At least one of
them is likely to be glad to help you. I'd be glad to help, but I'm
nearly 200 miles away. Good luck.
