At the time and place, it was very common for animals to be on the ground floor of the house. The people would sleep on the roof.
I know the stables were on the ground floor and the house above, but not about them sleeping on a roof. And again, why would it upset him that she came out first if he hadn't meant a human sacrifice? "Welcome back daddy, whatcha doing"? "Hey daughter, waiting on an animal to come out".
