Adjective order

Hello

I've been wondering this for a while, and I figured this was the proper (only?) place to look for an answer.

What is the rule in English for what order you place adjectives in? For example, you can say "the big, green house" but "the green, big house" sounds wrong. Why?

Thanks!
