Alright, so here's the deal.
I went and play "nomad" for a while. Just walking around for a few hours and in-game minecraft days.
As far away from my spawn as possible. Sounds like fun, right? Damn right, it is! But I didn't think it was going to be a pain in the back. I couldn't store my stuff and other things etc. etc.

Now, I've found myself a nice couple of mountains, started buildng a house (not yet finished). And then, I died.
Luckily I still have my be- OBSTRUCTED!?

Couldn't spawn, everything gone. Now I'd like to ask, is there a easy of finding houses that are several chunks away?
Please reply, I'd hate to look for such a perfect spot again.
I used a Random generator and thus, my acc name was born.

You could try to find a program here on the minecraft forum, that makes a picture over your world. Then you just search for you house.

Yeah, you could use a program like cartograph to get a map of your world, and try to find your way back from that. You could also use MCEdit, and move yourself to your house.

Have don that myself.  Before the bed was added to minecraft.
It doesn't matter what game you play, as long as you have a good time when playing it and that it is a game that is good(if you want to know if the game you're playing is good, just ask).

Get Iron, Redstone and Paper.
Make a lot of maps, start charting the directions you remembered going till you find your house again.
I bet you 1 dolar you read this.

I think I'll try the mc edit, since I've been on the seas for a whole in-game  day :)

EDIT: Alright, I downloaded mc edit after that I was like "Where to begin?"
Immediatly downloaded a cartographer and combining those I moved my player point and spawn point, thanks!

When you go off like that, leave Markers along the way. Either a trail of Torches or something else like Cobblestone. Not only will these help you travel from Spawn to your House, but in the future they may help you know where you are if you get lost again.

I always press F3 and remember my co-ordinates [example x:55.3 Y:345.6 Z:542.1] so if I go far away I know where to go. Also if you have torches place them just in case!  :--+:

Wow you sir are very unlucky...

that happened to me once, except that i had no bed yet... lol and what i did was cheat... i used a mod to be able to fly in order to find my house and then, when i finally found it, i deleted the mod... i like playing legitly but losing my house and some diamonds... really bothered me vv

But now, if you have beta 1.8+ you can use a program to change from survival to creative and the other way around, just to be able to fly around and find your house (put some beacons to guide you home in case you die again and have no bed), and then just change the game mode back to survival. :)

there's a program HERE.

Good luck!

EDIT: you could use Darkness8450's method in the future to prevent getting lost! :) he was really helpful i'll use that method too :)

I use Catograph_G to create images of my explored worlds. Whatever you have seen in game will show up on this program.

That and coordinates are never not useful.
