Architect Peter Pfeiffer has no patience for "eco bling."

That’s his term for the proliferation in the marketplace of pricey devices that promise consumers a greener "footprint" for their homes.

For homeowners who are building or doing major remodeling, he suggests, instead, that good design and planning can go a long way toward controlling energy consumption.
