Name of this detail please.

Recommended Posts

The separation with the frieze and crown, between the clapboards and the shakes. Is that considered to also be a cornice, or is there another name because of where it's located?

Around here, the regional term is "belly band," or, simply, "band trim."

If it were lower, at the level of the first floor, we'd call it the "water table."

Might be different in your area.

Horizontal Band Trim and Water Table is what we use around here.

Although, I only use Water Table when it's masonry. I don't know why.

Good. I was about to ask if they were joking about 'Water Table'. Still hard to tell when they're joking sometimes.

Quite serious about "water table" but it generally applies to the trim at the level of the first floor.
