I like it.

Are the ones you show in the snow built the same way, with a feeder in the back?

On second thought the only way to fill the feeder is to remove the top exposing the bees to the weather and yourself to the bees.

How about an inner cover to go over the bees and open for the feeder?

Just a thought.

very nice.

Yes they all have the space for the feeder. You can take the outercover all the way off as there is an intercover with the feeder space open. Or you can just lift the back of the outer cover and slide it forward a bit to place a jar of feed.

Those look good and well thought out. Previous experience is showing I'll bet.

Got around to getting the picture of the intercover and doing all the uploading steps.
