Re: Ordering food

I would just say "He makes the house white." as 
juH chISmoH (ghaH). When I use a phrase like (object) (verb)+moH 
(subject) I usually translate it as "(subject) causes (object) to 
(verb)", in this case "He causes house to be white." 

If I wish to translate "(Subject) causes (object) to (verb) (other 
object)," like in "The officer caused the guard to hit the captain.", I 
do it like "(other object) with no t5 suffix (object) (verb)+moH 
(subject)", so my above sentence would be "HoD 'avwI' qIpmoH yaS" (In 
TKD it says if there are other nouns in a sentence they go before the 
direct object.)
