The only way in and out is via the PVC pipe.

All the Vent holes are covered with metal screen from the inside.
The top Feeder jar hole has a PVC board Slider in channels, it hangs off the back side when it’s not in use. So do the PVC Gates.

There are two slide gates: one to block off the hive so it can be taken outside to work on the hive and clean it and one to Block the Pipe so they don’t come back into the house while working the Hive.

It is made completely out of Cedar.

I took some drawn out comb and honey from another hive to give the new (April 2nd) Queen a place to start laying Brood and the kids something to eat if they want it.

that’s pretty darn cool. I know nothing about apiaries, but that looks awesome.
