The issue is condensation and varmit/insect control.

Leave what you want out:

[*]Provide security. [/list]

[*]Provide protection from the elements and temp extremes. (Recommend that stock be brought in during the winter period)
[/list]

[*]Provide an environment that prevents condensation on the equipment. Ventilation and slow temp transients is key here. [/list]

I love this design, Beautiful work.

And yes when properly designed electronics can live outside. ( Think NEMA IV enclosures here )


My one thought and depending on where you live. Condensation can sometimes developing inside a structure depending on temperature, humidity and the dew point. As such a 40 watt light bulb inside with its residual heat and on a timer ( on between 10 pm and 7 am as an example ) would take care of this risk. Just make sure that the unit is insect proof via proper screening of any vents.
