Meant to assemble some in the home (9)
I believe the answer is:
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'.
(Other definitions for apartment that I've seen before include "accommodation", "suite", "Accommodation", "19 across", "pad", "Set of rooms or American flat", "Room ? flat", "quarters", "Penthouse" and "place to live".)
