Give Mom the remote. Whether she wants to cheer on her favorite team or binge on Bravo, no comments from the peanut gallery are allowed.
And by "dream," we do mean "dream." A pavilion this size, including the exterior finish materials, remote-controlled glass and bronze overhead door, prewiring and interior heating and air conditioning, can run $55,000, says Barbi Krass, owner of Colorworks Studio, which did the entire outdoor design, including the pavilion. A projector inside designed for both day and night viewing shoots the picture onto the back of a 9-foot-wide glass screen. Small speakers are strategically placed to distribute the sound evenly to the seating areas only, so that any neighbors beyond the large lot aren't disturbed.Colorworks brought in Grand Home Automation to install a weatherproof Wi-Fi system that works both outside and inside the house. Viewers can use an iPad app to turn on FM radio or pipe playlists and other music to the outdoor speakers. "The equipment itself is not particularly exotic, but the hookup interface to have all the pieces 'talk' to each other is," Krass says.
