Post Updated onYesterday we finished building out new NUC box; we also bought a new bench saw which helped a lot getting the cheap wood to be square. Finding Tin for the roof was hard work, so I decided to use a piece of plastic sheeting to hopefully make the box waterproof. I have painted the box on the outside white; it should be protected from the elements. We may need this when we next open up Goldie as I suspect swarm cells are being worked on, as was the case on the Honey 1 inspection.
