Image Ecclesiastical Atili:
First of all, let us assume that you are in a group, and you are asking if the listener wants the entire group to go home.
If you are with only the listener, replace all instances of ohim-salva-un-kón-u with ohim-salva-ún-kon (1+2-walk-LOC-3;CLF(container); /o.xɪm.səl.və.'uŋ.kon/)
If only the listener would be going home, replace them with et-salva-ún-kon (2-walk-LOC-3;CLF(container); /ɛt.səl.və.'uŋ.kon/) (this doesn't work with the last one)

TL; DR: The classic, unassuming question:
E et-vós-o e la házo ohim-salva-un-kón-u?
Q 2-want-3;CLF(abstract) REL to house 1+2-walk-LOC-3;CLF(container)-PL
/e: ɛt.'vo.so e lə.'xa.zo o.xɪm.səl.və.uŋ.'kó.nú/
'Do you want to go home?'

I mark the last two syllables as having a high tone in the IPA (ú, ó), not because they are inherent to the syllable (Atili has no phonemic tone), but because this is one of the indicators that the sentence is a question, the other being the "E" at the beginning of the sentence. If one wanted to express surprise that the listener has indicated a desire to go home, one might use the following construction with a different word order instead:

E e házo latsí-kon ohim-salva-un-kón-u et-vós-o?
Q REL house to-there-CLF(container) 1+2-walk-LOC-3;CLF(container) 2-want-3;CLF(abstract)
/e: e 'xá.zó lət.'si.kon o.xɪm.səl.və.uŋ.'ko.nu ɛt.'vó.só/
'You want to go home?'

If you expected the listener to want to go home, you might say:

Et-vós-o e la házo ohim-salva-un-kón-u, e da?
2-want-3;CLF(abstract) REL to house 1+2-walk-LOC;CLF(container) Q agreement
/ɛt.'vo.so e lə.'xa.zo o.xɪm.səl.və.uŋ.'ko.nu e: dá/
'You want to go home, right?'

And if you yourself wanted to go home, you might say:

I-vós-o e la házo ohim-salva-un-kón-u, e da?
1-want-3;CLF(abstract) REL to house 1+2-walk-LOC;CLF(container) Q agreement
/ɪ.'vo.so e lə.'xa.zo o.xɪm.səl.və.uŋ.'kó.nú e: dá/
'Shall we go home?'

Due to its polysynthetic nature, it is possible to express some sentences with a "single" word, and this is one of the examples that can be expressed with a "single" word.
