Building a new beehive
Here are some sites I have found about creating your own hive:
Bee Hive Journal includes list of considerations when thinking of building
Beesource.com offers downloadable “build-it-yourself” plans
The Bee Space has an idea to build 1 hive for free

Dadant Hive suggested by Buck White as it allows more bees, providing "a better defense against these new threats to bees."
Dadant Blatt - German version
Dadant Blatt Italica Carlini
If you would like to suggest a site or an idea for a bees hive please post in comments.
Of course if you know what kind of Bee Hive you would like to build visit Bee Hive Journal - An amazing depository of over 276 different beehive designs collected by Buck White. Thanks Buck.
