I wrote about keeping bees in my article An Introduction to Beekeeping last year. I had mentioned the Top Bar Hive designs at that time, but I didn’t go into detail about them. I think the best resource, by far, is the work done by Phil Chandler in his book (The Barefoot Beekeeper) and website (www.BioBees.com). If you have any interest in keeping bees, I highly recommend this site and this book.
