2 coats of fence and siding paint. Primer would have helped a lot with the finish. But primer stinks and is not good for bees.

I might be interested in a couple of beehives depending on the price. I have been wanting to go to the bee meetings so that I can get the grant forms to get some bee hives. But due to my current work hours I haven't been able to. I'm not sure if I'm with and driving distance to you because I don't know where brayton is. Let me know what you think.

40 minutes north of Chattanooga off hwy 27. $120.00 for 4 medium 8 frame super hive. Includes lid, vinyl roof, inner lid liner, bottom. $30.00 more if we paint it. Also I switched to a pneumatic stapler so no exposed screws. All you need now is frames.

That is a good price. And it would be a fun day drive for my wife and me. But right now we are saving for a Disney and Orlando vacation in November. But after that in the winter I would probably be interested in getting two of them...Thanks

That's fine with me. Winter is my slow time. So a day in the shop would be a bonus. Chattanooga has some great stuff to see;
A world class aquarium
Nice local zoo
The towing and recovery museum
Chicamauga battle field
Just to name a few ways to spend a day.

Nice BEE CASTLES HOMESHOW!!! I have always wondered how Bee Hives would fare with old fashioned White Wash. Any thoughts?
Up to my elbows in the dirt while being on top of the dirt is a great day!

I did some searching and read that whitewash was used back when that was what was used to paint houses.

The White Wash we used was Lime (calcium oxide) Salt and Water. Worked as a great, vapor free alternative to paint as well. AND very cheap to use too.
