Multi-character Ligatures with spaces

is it possible to create multi-character ligatures with Spaces?

for example:
M_y_(SPACE)_h_o_u_s_e.liga — i do not know how to insert the (SPACE) character.

i am working on an experimental font, and i am new to type design (and Glyphs). Any help is greatly appreciated.

You would need to use the name of the glyph and that is space.

But: It will not work everywhere. Because many text engines treat separators differently, and do not actually use the space glyph. Test it in the environment you intend it for, but YMMV. Though if you plan to release the font, I recommend to avoid spaces in ligatures.
