has anyone ever built one and had it populated ?

This isnt for honey bees, but for a special kind of bee which lives in germany called the "Horned Mason Bee". They dont produce honey and nest more like moths do, in cacoons which they remain in over the winter in hibernation. Completely different kind of bee than a honey bee. The boards are made so that after the bees enter, lay eggs, and the larvae hatch, the boards can be taken apart, the cocoons collected and saved in the fridge over the winter until spring when they are allowed to emerge normally from their cocoons.
