1/2 Depth Langstroth Box (super, 1/2 deep, Ideal size or storey) kitset, ready for assembly. You will have to supply your own nails or staples. Commercial grade may have tight knots, but no gaps or holes.
You may want to consider treating your woodware before assembly, or after. We have available for sale copper naphthenate and paraffin wax. And of course we now have the fantastic totally chemical free wood preservatives WB1 and WB2 from Gripset.
The 1/2 depth box makes a great spacer (or eke, pronounced "eek") for the application of thymol gel (Apiguard), the natural organic varroa mite treatment available for sale from Ceracell.
The other advantage of the 1/2 depth system is that its half the weight of a full frame system. Lighter for lifting and mobility. Also, if necessary, you could have two 1/2 depth boxes and fit a full depth frame in an emergency.
