  •  I put cutouts in the peaks of my roof. (5+ / 0-)

    I didn't want Victorian but sort of nautical because of the river. They're triangles with an upside down fan of drop-shaped cutouts. They're up in the peaks of the dormers. Crappy picture:

    I couldn't bring them forward to the edge of the overhang the way I wanted so they're placed against the house.
    I used 1" marine ply and finger-spread silicone caulk on the sanded-to-round butt edges, then primed and painted.
    It's so cool because you can make any shape or pattern cutout. Jigsawville, baby.
