Top tip.

Make your floors a couple of inches deep and voila drone comb built on the bottom of most of the frames. No need to lose brood nest capacity.

KISS. ;)

Poly design... way ahead. LOL

I can do better than that: give them two foundationless frames....two whole brood frames of drone comb. Just done it....bit excessive, half of one would have done (as in it wasn't intended thus....:eek:).
