Welcome to this sticky tutorial on Valheim building! Today, we're going to show you a buzz-worthy way to build a roof using beehives. Yes, you heard that right, beehives!

Now, I know what you're thinking, "But only roof tiles and structures provide shelter don't they?" Well, fear not, my friends! Many players don't know that beehives actually provide shelter underneath them, which means you can build a roof out of beehives above your base instead of a regular roof.

Not only will this give your base a unique and charming look, but you'll also be able to harvest the honey by climbing onto the roof. And, to top it all off, you can even make your bedroom underneath for the ultimate honey-filled experience.

So, whether you're a beekeeper at heart or just looking for a fun and unusual way to spruce up your Valheim base, join us as we buzz through the process of building a beehive roof. Let's get started!

Beehives create hexagons inside their hives. It is only fitting that we create hexagons to hold the beehives! You can create a squished hexagon in Valheim using 1-meter beams. Practice making the shape a couple of times because it is easy to make it too large or small by mistake. Each hexagon can hold one beehive. 

If the bees aren't happy then you need to make sure they have enough space below them. Build the bees higher up and they'll be happy. Have fun!

Thanks! I'm trying to make content which is easy for valheim players to follow. I feel like a lot of content is geared towards hardcore valheim players with lots of free time and that isn't the majority of the playerbase... you know? I want to make things more accessible for people who actually play the game
