je pense que cette question mauvais reponse. un grand ogre - Cette phrase est correct? n'est pas?
Putting the adjective "grand" before the noun tends to give the sense of "great" whereas after the noun "tall".
So the "ogre grand comme une maison" suggests "as tall as a house" which seems to make more sense to me.
Hope this helps.
If you look at 'Rule' 4 in the lesson you linked - placement of adjectives followed by a complement, you will find this explains this situation : un ogre grand (comme une maison) - comme une maison is a complement, as the lesson covers. An 'ogre' that is grand like a house; not a 'grand ogre' that is like a house.
