Hi Amanda,Thanks for the suggestion MC, but the idea of looking towards a long hive is that I don't have to lift anything off to look at the brood, other than a roof and crownboard. The weight of the boxes becomes more or less irrelevant here, it is just my choice of construction method/material I was trying to sort out. I think it is probably a non starter and I will have to use wood but I know the bees like the poly where I am.
There is a UK Long Hive group on facebook (if you do facebook) that you are more than welcome to join, there's a chap on there that makes long hives from old fridges
