You dont need a backup to acheive this.... what you need is a http:// or svn:// based access to access your work repository from home (and that obviously implies that you should be able to access office machine from home - maybe via vpn?)
For this, you dont need the repsitory at home. You only need a working copy at home. For precise definitions, pl. read the book... http://svnbook.red-bean.com/

so far, so good...

do you realize that changes made to the repo at work will not be visible at your home?

You need to checkout using tortoisesvn/cmd line svn client to do this...
