Will i need a disconnect on my house?
 
400Amp meter main with 2-200a breakers on shop. 1 for the shop and the other feeding the house. Want to put the panel in the house and have nothing on the outside of the house. Can i do this or am I going to need a disconnect on the house outside? Distance from the house to the shop is roughly 75'.

You are going to need a disco most likely at the meter. Check with your local AHJ.

Yes. You will one for the house panel, and the shop panel.

If your meter has main breakers as you state you will not need another disconnect. The other panel will need another main if it is located in another building.
