Is Target Glamourizing Squatting in Your Neighbor's Backyard?

So I've been watching this Target commercial for awhile now. It immediately struck me as a sign of our times-- the advertising answer to us all having to tighten our belts. Oh, look, your aerobicize ball is the new gym, what fun it is to shave your kids hair on the porch, its the new haircut trend! But then last night when it came on during House, I thought, wait a second: a tent is the new family room? where did the old family room go? Is it being remodeled? Why is there an inviting house in the background? Which grandparent's house is this family squatting in?
