Beach house circle thingy


Does anyone know what the circle thing is called that is just a decorative thing on the outside of the house? My parents have one above the garage, their house is very beachy, it looks like something off a boat. I want to get them another one but don't know what they are called! Its a circle, made of wood, with wooden slats across it.If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated!

Based on your description the first thing that came to mind was a gable vent. Does it look similar to this?

A round gable vent is also what I thought of - They are more than decorative. They vent hot air our of attics. There are some non-venting decorative only, ones made. They are available in many sizes and come in plastic or various woods. I hand built one out of cedar once for a shed.

The birds also love them. So easy to fly in and make little birdie nests in your attic. Make sure there is a heavy duty screen behind the vent to keep them out.
