Sorry for the slow response. I am a California native going to school in Bar Harbor, ME., but scouting for internships all over the country because I want to live in a new place for the summer.

Sure. I can probably use all the help I can get. If you are referring to the cut out Ben set up then I am hoping to do it this Wed afternoon/evening. I am still fairly new to beekeeping but not new to construction & contracting.
