n. occupation name.
A man who works at home for his family, cleaning, cooking, (rearing children,) etc., esp. one who does not work outside of the home.

This is a back-formation derived from housewife and a blending with husband (no pun here, purely linguistics) The e in the base house- is omitted to make the noun masculine. The new base hous- blends with husband, oh la get a housband.
