After moving into their new home, Alan and Riva developed a list of projects to personalize and enhance their home. Projects were prioritized according to personal needs, up-front costs, efficiency gains, and environmental performance. Their goals were to reduce energy and water use and to use environmentally friendly materials. As they grew into their new house, they added and changed projects to better fit their varying needs.
