Thanks. I think it will definitely be an opportunity to learn. And as a bonus I can get my 'bee fix' during the winter.
In my case, I have a bay window that I will be putting it in. The window is under the front porch and faces northeast. It only gets a couple of hours of direct sunlight early in the morning so it shouldn't get too hot. I made two so I'm not sure where the second one is going yet.
Out of wife's sight? I'm single so I don't have to worry about that.
Thanks. It turned out better than I expected.
