I am a new home owner and not really aware if I would cause long term damage by drilling any where I feel like. So I am seeking help from the forum. Highly appreciate all the help !
The lights will be in a triangular fashion, hanging at two points from the exterior of the house and at one point in the detached garage. The detached garage is not higher ground. I have labelled points 1 on the garage, and 2 and 3 on point where the wall and the ceiling of the tiny porch like extension of the house meet.
- For point 1 on the garage, I see the long strip of wood beside the gutter as an option, but it's thin enough so that the fish eye will pass it and then get inserted in the siding too. I am not sure if this is the only option. What do you guys think ? Another option is the fascia board, but that is too high for my purposes.
- For points 2 and 3 - there is piece of wood that projects just below the ceiling (Marked with a Black Rectangle) in this image. I think that is big enough for a larger fish eye screw, but I am not sure if that's cause any damage. Only other option for these two points is the siding.
I have tried looking for forums and have spoken to people in HomeDepot etc but haven't gotten a decent answer. So I will appreciate any help that I can get.
