Porches and Bees Oh My!

 The back of the house is getting a rear porch roof...

with more posts from the Barnyard Boys holding up the gable.

The roof doesn't project out from the house much because this is the South side of the house; we don't want to inhibit solar gain.

I removed the plastic container frames (in the foreground) from the hive.  They were installed by the previous bee farmer in the hopes that there would be pre-segregated honey and comb to sell at farmer's markets.  Apparently the bees didn't dig the idea.

The hive does get sun. I'm glad I didn't bother moving it northward!

Very pleased to see progress with house and bees.
