“I turned the house upside-down, but I couldn’t find the Christmas decorations.” 「家中を徹底的に探したけどクリスマス用の飾りが見つからない。」

Turned the House Upside-Downという表現は、怪力を使って家をひっくり返したのではなく、家の中の至る所を探した(もしかしてそれで大分ちらかってしまった)という意味です。

If someone says they turned the house upside-down, it doesn’t mean they used super strength to pick up the house and flip it over. It means they looked everywhere in the house (and maybe made a mess!) looking for something.
