How about "By the time they come back he will have done his homework"?
Does it sound incorrect? Can you tell us aprendedores de inglês why?

By the time (before) they come back   -  he will have done his homework.
He will have done his homework         -  by the time (before) they come back .
                                                          

In other words, when they come back he will have already finished his homework.
