Home is where the house rabbit is.
Here in New Zealand, a rental property is known as a “flat”. It doesn’t matter if it’s a unit, a stand alone house, or an apartment. From a real estate point of view, a flat refers to an attached unit regardless of ownership status. When you are “flatting”, it means you’re renting with others and a “flatmate” is the equivalent of a “roomie”. Still, it doesn’t seem quite right to say that my husband and rabbit are my flatmates.
BTW…Flat whites have nothing to do with flats and house reds have nothing to do with houses. Just a weird coincidence.
