It’s finally warming up and if you’re anything like me you are beyond ready. After being stuck inside the last several months, I can’t wait to spend some time outdoors with friends and family. If you’re also anything like me, you probably have a little work to do before you’re ready to host that first BBQ of the year.

How to Create an Outdoor AV Haven for all Seasons:
If you’re planning your new home, you’ve probably noticed that “interior” design has found its way outside. In modern homes, the backyard patio, deck or pool area can often be as elaborate as any inside space, sometimes incorporating a full kitchen, extensive seating and dining areas, and, of course, electronic entertainment. That means getting sound and video, normally enjoyed under the protection of a roof, safely outdoors. It also means being sure your AV equpiment is protected from the weather in all seasons.
