Advice needed for mounting pixels

I need some advice in regards mounting pixels, I would like them to be easily removable as this is my first home and I do not plan to live here forever. Can anyone help or link me to any products that would work for this layout. It's a very very rough sketch, but this is for the house's portion. I've pretty much figured out yard layout. 


For my window frames and house trim, I used Boscoyo ChromaTrim strips mounted to frames made from 3/4" PCV pipe.

It makes for very clean lines and install/uninstall is very quick.  My frames and trim strips have screw eyes attached and I have brass ceiling hooks installed on the house to hang the frames and trim pieces.

here's a pic of the type of hooks I am referring to:


Thank you very much! Looks awesome, i think I'm going to go with this. Will this work for my roof line?

There may be better ways to do the roof line, but you could use the same chromatrim or one of James' other products available on the page which would give you a straight line.  How to secure to the roof is probably the harder decision.


Binder clips hold well to the shingles. You can mount the lights to 1x2 or any boscoyo mounting strips. Zip tie the strips or wood to the clips. Easy cheap and fast. Put a zip tie around the clip and then zip tie to that zip tie.  If you want to mount under the eaves, then what is the material?  I have aluminum flashing that covers mine so I use the binder clips to that overhang.  I also have vinyl trim around the corners that I attach binder clips as well.
