The Warré (or 'People's Hive', as its inventor named it) is a popular alternative to other vertical hives and is used by some commercial beekeepers, especially in France. In the right conditions, it can produce a good crop of honey and requires very little intervention by the beekeeper when compared with conventional hives.
These plans are recommended as being clear and easy to follow.
The Warré Garden Hive Construction Guide 2.0 requires only moderate skills and uses low-cost materials. If you can put up a set of shelves, then you can make a serviceable beehive!
