I needed the house to slot in with the landscape and respect the architectural patterns and history within the area that got here earlier than it, moderately than stick out like a sore thumb. In different words, regardless that I’d love a storybook Tudor Revival and my husband likes new houses with neoclassical/Georgian type components, I do not need to construct something that’s incompatible with its environment.
Step one is the most time consuming, particularly when you have by no means finished this before. After getting made a nuc or two, it starts to turn into a breeze. In case you examine the image rigorously, it has every piece laid out on a 2′ x four’ piece of plywood. Personally, I use 3/4 inch plywood from Lowe’s or Home Depot. I attempted half but it surely didn’t appear to hold up on the joints nearly as well. Spend a few additional dollars for the good things, your bees will thanks.
My apologies if this has already been really helpful, I did not learn all of the comments. I do know someone talked about an umbrella utilizing plastic. Have you thought about excavating, again fill with 2 ft of gravel, the remainder with sand and then use a pit liner (lasts eternally, utilized by oil industry for drilling pits) as the umbrella? The pit liner would be more than enough and might be ordered in sizes that may cover the complete home. Simply food for thought.

Hello Mega1. Quick notice, you mention that these homes are built with metal rebar bolstered hay bales. That is completely incorrect. I never educate the use of rebar as it’s an outdated and inferior practice for bale stability. Secondly, and extra importantly, you CAN’T use hay to build. You need to use STRAW. They are very totally different materials as hay is a food while straw isn’t.
