Can we not have the word order 'Du bist willkommen in meinem Haus?

I would also like to know this. I seem to remember something about the dative part of a sentence going first, but I'm a bit hazy about it.

Warum im ist falsch?

"im" ist eine Abk├╝rzung von "in" und "dem", und "in dem meinem Haus" macht doch keinen Sinn. (You wouldn't say "in the my house").

"im" is a short form of "in dem". You can't say "in dem meinem Haus". Only "in dem Haus" or "in meinem Haus" are correct.

Is the English word order wrong in German? Ie. 'Du bist willkommen in meinem Haus' is never said?

Why is "gern geschehen in meinem Haus" not accepted?
