If you build your house near your spawn point, then you can either craft a compass (http://www.minecraftforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=13134), which will point you towards your spawn point, or you can get yourself killed and respawn. If you didn't build your house near your spawn point, you can use a map rendering tool such as Cartograph (http://www.minecraftforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=13134) to render your map. You can then look at the image and find your house on it. Good luck!

You can make yourself a compass or build your house near a spawn point.

You can either build your house near a spawn point, use a compass, or make a bed in your house so at least if you die u'll spawn in your house. You can also make a big tower that you can see from anywhere and put torches at the top. It is a lot easier doing that than using a compass.

You can build a compass, make a bed in you house, or simply connect your walk path with tunnels and make signs through the way, so you can remember later where are you. Another good tip is to make big towers of stone near your house, that way you can see it far away and go back when you want.

A good way is a compass, and base it off the spawn point, but the best way is just hit f3 and use the coordinate system.  Good luck

The easiset way to find your house is to make a note of its X,Y,Z coordinates. You can do this by pressing F3 in the game. X and Z are the equivalent of Latitude and Longitude, while Y is your height from bedrock (also useful for finding the ideal mining layers). If you keep these coordinates recorded, you will always be able to find your house, no matter how far away from the spawn it is.

The best way to find your house is to backtrack where you came from.

Myself, I always leave a trail of torches so I can find my way back. I also lay torches to the spawn from my house using the compass.

just remember the coordinates of you house, or build it near a spawn point so you'll remember

There are no specific tools within the game to do this other than perhaps the compass, however this merely leads you to your spawn point. I have found that the best way to do this is to create a set of very obvious landmarks in a triangulation pattern, i.e. three large pink towers of wool about 50 blocks from my building area in three different directions.

If you build a compass, it will lead you to your spawn point. Your spawn point is supposed to change to the location that you last slept in (using a bed), so if you slept in your house it should be there. For me, though, the spawn point didn't change even after I slept in a bed. So failing that, you could just try to look at your surroundings or remember which direction it was in. You could always start over, if worst comes to worst.

You can make a high tower near to your house from cobblestone and put torches on the sides of the high tower and then you can locate your house by following the light from the torches. (guess you can see the torches only when night)

This is what I always do and it is recommended to put your valuable items in a chest before you start making the tower.

If you want a direct way to get to your house, google 'Zan's Minimap.' It's a mod that you can install on minecraft that shows a little minimap in your top-right and you can make waypoints that it points to, I.E. your house. It works on multiplayer too.
