So this has been a dream of mine for a while and every Christmas I get excited to it but never have. I used to put Christmas lights on my backyard detached garage, both string lights and icicle lights. Now I don’t do that anymore because it’s too much work. Basically the garage is a double decker garage. The first level has a larage garage door for a car and the second level is an attic. However the attic is pretty big because the roof line is a “gambrel” roof. I always though the “gambrel” roof line would like great with LED lights accentuating it. However I would like the lights to be permanently attached, not something that will break or you will have to take down/ put up ever year. Also I think it would be really cool if the lights could be COLOR CHANGING and fade out and in during he transitions. In addition to the the roofline, there is a soffit board on the first level race of the garage that I think would look really cool with some LED accent lighting. Of course I also think these should be permeant. I think RECCESED lights might would better when installing the LEDs on an eave/soffit board and I think reccesed lights would better stand the wheahter/prevent water ingress in that application.
Any ideas on how to wire up something like this? (The garage has electrical power and plenty of lights already connected on the inside, so I’m not worried about blowing any breakers. In 15 years of using it I have never blown a breaker even using heavy power tools and motors, air compressors, etc)
