After placing my potted Figtree in my basement for the winter, I bought it up to my family room in early January because it didn't look like it was doing to well.
Since its been in my family room, it has grown substantially and it looks terrific.
The question is how do I transition it outside to a Northern CT Spring without shocking it to death ?

The simple answer is, "Slowly, and when conditions are mild and comparable to inside."
I usually start with sunny days and place the plants against a south-facing wall if the temperature is a bit low. I also try to avoid very windy days at first, which can dry out the plants very quickly.
Watch them and if they seem stressed, bring them back inside.
