I tried searching on google and on here as well but couldn't find this anywhere... I had the brilliant idea of putting net lights on my roof, instead of using more and more lines of C9s. My current setup : I have the roof outlined in multi-C9s along the gutter and up the sides to the "peak". (Think a U) Instead of adding more LOR channels I am concentrating on adding more lights this year and the roof was obviously an open canvas. I thought about buying more C9s and putting them on an angle, or just filling in the roof with some type line pattern. But why do that when I can put down net lights? GREAT IDEA, cool effect (at least in my head right now)... Think about the U shape, but now I am filling in the middle. I already purchased the lights (got a decent deal on 2ft X 8ft LED multi color, 150 lights) but now I am thinking about how to secure them next year. Any ideas? I was thinking a wooden frame would work to hold in place, maybe some ropes that are secured, pvc frame (lightweight but enough to hold them in place)... has anyone done this or have any ideas? If you have done it, photos of your setup could be great! I am also thinking its possible to use the C9s already in place to hold them? zip tie them together? creating a GIANT net that I can just roll out? Picture below from a few years ago but the roof is basically unchanged in terms of light layout.
I purchased a bunch of inflatables after Christmas this past season and there are a few I want to put on my roof in a few months. My roof has a pitch that is favorable for this project, but after watching a few videos and reading older posts on here, I figured why not start a new post and see if anyone had any current ideas, or better ways of making sure the inflatable go up on the roof, don't move, and look great. Hopefully someone can help me out. Thanks!
I got my deer done. I bought the metal frame deer on Craig's list from the neighbor of the guy who actually hand made and welded them. The old incandescent lights didn't work so I striped them off and relit them with led. 95 percent of my display is LED. Got them all on the roof and wondered what you guys thought. Be honest if I should rearrange, space out, or do anything that would make it look better please let me know. There is a gap where I had to doctor one up before I put him back up there. He is like the other that is standing with his head up. Also there are c9 red bulbs as reins on both sides of the deer. I tried using the first bulb of the c9 for Rudolph's nose but it didn't turn out very well. Any ideas for Rudolph's nose?
I came up with a idea to outline my roof with C9 LED retrofits. I started out with 1/2 PVC and 5/8 J-channel. Cut the J-channel to three in sections and cut the PVC to the length you need for your section of roof, in this case over my garage. Attach the J-channel to the pipe by sliding in in the channel and installing a couple of rivets. I painted them black so they would blend in better with the roof. Then installed the lights with some hot glue and zip ties. At the end I just cut the wire and installed a vampire plug. Then I just use some 2in metal binder clips that attach to the J-channel and the shingle. Here is the final result. Sorry about the dirty gutters been waiting for the pollen and leaves to stop flying so I can wash the house.
