Why "Behind this door is my room." is correct. And "Behind a car is a house." is not correct?

Should I be able to hear a difference between "машиной" and "машины" ? In this sentence I cannot.

    There is a difference in this TSS’s pronounciation. However, don't worry if you don't hear it: sometimes in quick speech they may sound the same, and «за маши́ны дом» doesn't make any sense anyway.

    I thought so. My problem is that I can't get clues from the context like a native can, especially when I'm confused by the pronunciation. What's TSS?

      Sorry, I've meant TTS, text-to-speech engine :D
