In the MEV & NKJV reverse interlinears, they have "oikos (18)" under the word "church" and "ekklesia (20)" under the word "house." 

In the KJV reverse interlinear, it lists "ekkesia (20)" under the word "church" and then "oikos (18)" under the word "house." 

Is this an error or a translator's preference? 

Thanks.

These are wrong...specifically, backwards. [I'm going to ignore the fact that "church" is one of those words that has accrued so much baggage that it bears little resemblance to the intention of the original languages.]

This is correct. [Same caveat.]
