Creating a container just like with toolbox, except changes in home dir don't affect host?

Is it possible to create an experience, similar to that with toolbox (i.e. host users, host net, host ipc…) except changes inside the home directory of the container do not affect the host? As in it would feel like all of my home directory was copied into the container, and not like a mounted volume.

I’m new to reading about how mounts, storage drivers, and tmpfs works but I feel like it’s possible.

Thanks so much!

You might be able to do something like that with overlayfs…
