Does @home use DHCP to assign addresses?  If so, dhclient is probably
clobbering /etc/resolv.conf everytime it gets a new lease.

You can fix this by adding something like the following to /etc/dhclient.conf:

prepend domain-name-servers 10.1.2.3;
supersede domain-name "mydomain.com";

This will make 10.1.2.3 the first name server, and set your domain to
mydomain.com.  man dhclient.conf for more information.
