Backer Residence

Some homes are born green, some achieve greenness, and some have greenness thrust upon them.

Even if your home wasn't very efficient to begin with, these days there are more neat green tweaks and energy-saving technologies available than ever and most are adaptable to existing homes.

One forward-looking family in Fort Lee, New Jersey, learned that going green is every bit as possible for older homes as it is for new ones. With the help of interior designer Kylie Egge, the Backer family successfully remodeled their home in high style while cutting their water consumption by an impressive 30%.
