Corresponds to the home address you mean?
gpg --export-secret-keys [names] -a -o key.asc
on the home machine and
gpg --import key.asc
on the work machine. If you want to sign something with your home key
option to select the home key. Alternatively you can change the
=2Egnupg/options file to select a different default-key.

Should work this way, secret keys are not clobbered. You just have to
remember to select the right secret key then...
