Here is my best explanation:

'the home' is the definition.
The definition and answer can be both man-made objects as well as being singular nouns.
Maybe there's an association between them I don't understand?

'meant to assemble some in' is the wordplay.
'to assemble' is an anagram indicator.
'some' becomes 'part' (**).
'in' indicates putting letters inside.
'meant' anagrammed gives 'ament'.
'ament' placed around 'part' is 'APARTMENT'.
