I just read the first paragraph of a story for children. It is written as follow. There was once an old woman who had three little pigs who ate and ate and ate, until they had eaten her almost out of house and home. As a non-native speaker (me), my confusion started when my eyes read the part of sentence -- her almost out of house and home. Her is a possessive determiner. So, Is "her" here used to describe nouns such as house and home? Question here: What I am perplexed is that what do "almost out of" serve as? Serve as adjective here? This question might be too complicated and probably no one can help with this one. Thanks for reading this.
