Some expressions:
- En casa del herrero, cuchillo de palo.
- El casado casa quiere.
- Cada uno en su casa y Dios en la de todos.
Hope you enjoy those ones. No se me ocurre nada más, no estoy muy inspirada hoy. But I'll keep on

Another English expression: to be housebound. A tough one to translate...

Housebound = homebound = being confined to the house all day
confinado en casa

Homebound can also mean that you're heading home, as in de camino a casa.
