Over the past few years the use of string and rope style lights for exterior accent lighting and for holiday displays has been on the increase. The most recent Eldorado Covenants and Guidelines do not address these types of lighting, but such lighting can be very bright and usually is not downward shielded.

(See photo below of an example of such a roof.)
