Pictures from the 2015 Setup
Even though I have drawings, diagrams and documention of all sorts on each setup,
it never hurts to have pictures to refer back to.

Back of the house
Back of house rooftop
Santa and his Sleigh are bolted to a wooden bracket I built to straddle the peak of the roof.
Santa is connected by wire to the sleigh. 70 lb sandbags are placed on the wooden bracket
to keep everything from moving during high winds. See Bloopers page for what can happen.
The extension cords are wrapped and zip tied around the wooden brackets.
4 reindeer on middle wooden bracket. 3 of these reindeer use to be animated.
4 reindeer and Rudy on east side of roof middle wooden bracket.
Rudy is the only of these 5 reindeer that were never animated.
2 Controllers in back of house. I protect the cords from sharp gutter edges with plastic
hose pieces and then duct tape over the top to keep in place.
5 of the 14 Hose reels I used to organize and store my 1.5 miles of extension cords.
Power and extension cords
Cat 5 cables that daisy chain the controllers, which connect to the laptop, which runs the show.
This area of the house is the highest with the least amount of walls, which makes for a clear
transmission of the music from the transmitter to your vehicle.
