I think it means that the man owns the house, but he wasn't the first person to ever live in it and other people probably share the home.

The phrase is a man's home is his castle. It was brought over to America by the Brits; however, there has been documented cases where homeowners defend themselves with weapons and get charged with a crime. It should be that ur safe & secure in ur home but taking matters into ur own hands means u may be arrested if u use deadly force against intruder which in essence means ur home really isn't ur castle anymore.
