    Question rephrasing subtitle

    Hi there,

    I gave my students a test (word search puzzle) titled " Let me show you around our new house"; the subtitle reads:Rooms and buildings around the house.
    Isn't my subtitle correct as someone suggested?
    Could someone infer that there may be rooms outside the house as well (because of "and")The buildings I wanted to revise were the garage and the barn.
    Could you possibly tell me a better way of rephrasing the subtitle in order to avoid the misunderstanding?

    Thank you very much

    You could say "in and around the house."
