Even conceding inelastic supply of housing, I think that you have to take into account the fall in the real prices of all other goods that should result from more labor supply. This should compensate the one-earner household for the increased price of housing. The two-earner household will be richer than the one-earner household, but will have to put up with two sucky jobs instead of one. I'm a little out of practice with this stuff, maybe some micro gurus would like to take a stab at it...
