    Re: in your house / at your house?

    Either one could be right.

    "in your house" means inside.

    "at your house" means simply there.

    You say to your friend: It's so hot here and my air conditioner is broken.
    Your friend: Oh, it's nice and cool in my house. I've got the air conditioner going full blase.
    You say: I wish I were in your house.

    You call your friend from your niece's dance recital, having seen fourteen performances of little girls dressed like flowers and your niece's performance is still another half hour from now. Your friend says he's got the grill going, there's cold beer in the refrigerator, and the football game is on tv. You say: I wish I were at your house (instead of here).
