I put my hive together last night and thought I would share some things that I did that you should not do, and somethings I did that you should do.
1- On the Flow super box… there is a definite front and back to these pieces. Pay attention to where the pre drilled holes are for clues as to which is correct. This cost be some time having to take all the screws out and put them all back in when I screwed this up. Luckily it was really no big deal just a pain.
2- Do pre drill your holes when installing the roof in particular. It helped me immensely square up and position the panels not also having to worry about maintaining that position by hand/eye. There were also some knots in inconvenient places that ended up being no big deal because I pre-drilled them
3- Several pieces had a slight warp/curvature to them. This was easily remedied with some weight while screwing them together. But clamps would have made my life 100% easier. I highly recommend them.
Over all it was pretty smooth sailing, that’s just my 2 cents.
