 Christmas Lights

Seems like the wife has gone berzerk this year with the Christmas light thing, but that's Ok except she wants me to climb around on the roof putting lights on all the eves of the house. There has to be a hero somewhere in this great country of ours who has invented eve troughs with built in Christmas lights that just stay up year round. There might actually be such a thing that we haven't heard of yet out here in the sticks. Frank.

They're called "Rope Lights" and are available in the building supply stores. I think they are LED's in a flexible plastic tube. My buddy has blue ones permanently mounted on his house's eves, deck, railings, etc.

 Christmas Lights

Have the same wife problem you do. Not quite the permanent solution you were looking for, but after years of evolution, I've mounted all my lights on "frames". For those on the gable ends, some screw hooks mounted once at the peak and near the bottoms, and frames with corresponding eye bolts and the the lights go up easily and quickly. For those to be mounted on gutters, I bolted small spring clamps to the frames and these clamp over the gutter edge. First year is difficult laying every thing out and getting the lights mounted to the frames, but if you label the frames correctly the succeeding years are a breeze. After trying various different frame materials, pretty much settled on wood furring strips. Tried PVC but it was too flexible. Galvanized electric conduit works well for the gable ends, but then you have to tape the lights to it instead of using a staple gun.
