zu Hause infers "at home". Would it be "Er ist nicht im Haus mit der Mutter"?

You can say that, but it is not considered "good" German. Also, it would be "Er ist nicht mit der Mutter im Haus". The location (im Haus) normally goes at the end of the sentence. Look up "Mittelfeld" or the Temporal, Kausal, Modal and Local causes.

why wasn't "innenseite" used for inside?
