The backyard shed: not just for storing lawn equipment any longer! Today’s newest trend in extended living spaces
As part of this year’s “Fit Home” theme at the New Orleans Home & Garden Show, home safety expert and experienced builder Rolf Parelius will present “Home Hardening” seminars, free to show attendees. Seminars will be held each day on the show’s Seminar Stage.
The term ‘home hardening’ is an adaptation from a military and law enforcement concept – target hardening, meaning making a target less attractive or approachable. Parelius, owner of Viking Construction Services in Jefferson Parish, offers this explanation: “The goal is to make it harder for a criminal to gain access to your house. Most people think immediately of cameras and security, but there are any number of other things that the average homeowner can do or have a handyman do that don’t involve technology.”
Prevention is key, says Parelius. “It also goes the furthest,” he says. “The most effective home hardening makes your house the one a criminal skips automatically. My intention is to help people avoid any contact with criminals.”
Parelius will address ways to deter criminal interest through window and door choices, landscaping, lighting, visibility and other options. Several vendors at the show offer products suitable to assist with home hardening efforts, including Acadian Window & Door, Cobra Security Products, Doors of Elegance, Marvin Windows & Doors, Mike Ward’s Liberty Safes, Pella Windows & Doors and many more.

The New Orleans Home & Garden Show features Eat Fit NOLA chefs for 3 days of cooking demos Chefs will be cooking on custom-made outdoor kitchen
The New Orleans Home & Garden Show is proud to announce the return of an overwhelmingly popular show feature that will inspire you live healthier. It’s the Eat Fit NOLA cooking demonstrations hosted by nutritionist Molly Kimball and featuring chefs from area restaurants serving Eat Fit NOLA dishes. The chefs will be cooking in a custom-made outdoor kitchen created by MJ Metal.
The chefs kick off cooking demonstrations and tastings shortly after the doors to the 61st Annual New Orleans Home & Garden Show open on Friday, March 11 at noon. Demonstrations and tastings will be held each day of the show. Eat Fit NOLA is the brainchild of Molly Kimball, a registered dietitian with Ochsner Health System. For the program, Kimball works with chefs and restaurants to develop good-for-you menu items without compromising on flavor. Kimball uses the American Heart Association’s upper limits for sodium and saturated fat, and then takes it even further with no white carbs and less than a teaspoon of added sugar.
This year, those attending the cooking demos can also download the Eat Fit NOLA app that not only has nutrional information and listings of restaurants that feature Eat Fit NOLA dishes, but includes the recipes being prepared, so audience members can follow along and ask questions during the demos.

When people think about ease and use of advanced technology, the age group that comes to mind is, more than likely, Millennials. But since today’s technology is typically designed to allow someone to live a more complete, independent life, then it’s aging Baby Boomers who may very well be the group to benefit the most. So from Boomers to today’s youngest homebuying generation, the High-Tech Pavilion at this year’s New Orleans Home & Garden Show will enlighten, inspire and guide.
PEMBA Lighting, Sound & Automation, is combining the “wow” of the latest in technology with need as a means of helping more Americans to stay safe in their home, with an emphasis on those looking to age in place. This year during the 61st Annual New Orleans Home & Garden Show, PEMBA will have on display four mini rooms, or vignettes, each outfitted with products that can make life easier and safer, for everyone.
