Is there anyway to purchase a new home while still in chapter 13 bankruptcy?

When participating in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, all major financial transactions must be approved by the bankruptcy trustee. One of the factors the trustee will take into consideration is if the transaction is necessary. For instance the purchase of a vehicle for transportation to a place of employment would probably be allowed. The purchasing of a home might not qualify as a neccessity unless it was an issue of health/safety.
