Maybe she feels the house is too exposed or not safe. If she gets ambushed is there an out?

If there is one lesson cats teach humans again and again it's that if you buy them something they won't use. Cats are extremely resourceful animals and outdoor/feral cats are especially bright. They have excellent survival instincts and can generally take care of themselves. As long as you are providing her with food and water and she has a shelter if she chooses to use it you are doing everything right. It sounds like she may be semi-feral and just need to adjust to your family and a new place. Good luck!
