I transposed "you" and "everyday" at the beginning of the sentence. Is that not allowed in a question?

It is alright, but word order does have a subtle effect on the focus and perspective of the speech, which somehow I think we can ignore first at beginner/intermediate stage.

Any reason why we can't use 每天都 instead of just 每天 in this sentence?

It is also acceptable. 都 adds emphasis, but it's used quite often.

2019-01-21: I used “你每天都几点回家” and it was marked wrong.

Can a native speaker clarify the nuances between using "每天" and "每天都"?
