With the structured interview, 10 people who have different life structures about home life, the number of people staying at home and their roles at home were interviewed. By examining the interview transcripts, 4 common themes were found as the effects of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the effects of working-from-home, the work-life conflict, and the effects of the pandemic process.
