House shaped tent is not an adequate description to make erektion suggestions.
Broadly speaking tents are divided into categories of dome, tunnel, ridge, bell or frame.
The ridge tent is sort of house shaped and the classic frame tent also, though this is usually referred to as a bungalow or perhaps chalet tent. None of these types peaks in the centre of the top and neither does a house, usually.
A small marquee peaks in the centre of the top and is also vaguely house-shaped but it seems somehow unlikely you have a small marquee..
It is also important to know whether there is an inner and an outer tent or flysheet and a sewn-in groundsheet, single pole, ridge pole, frame, fibreglass rods or perhaps an A frame.
I can't advise much without knowing what sort of tent you have but I advise you to practice, practice, practice and colour code or number each pole assembly. Bad weather when pitching for the first time is too late to be trying to read instructions and wondering which pole section goes where.
I also advise taking extra pegs and guy ropes in case of accidents or really foul weather. Tents are provided with minimum equipment for moderate weather pitched on hard packed loam type ground.
For different types of ground; sandy soil or rocky different designs of pegs are available and should be used along with heavy stones or sandbags. Double pegging is also advisable in some circumstances.
Preparation and attention to detail is the key to a successful camping trip. No extra precautions often turns a simple camping trip into pure misery. I once camped at the top of a high cliff when bad weather was expected. I double-pegged and fitted extra guy ropes and slept right through a gale while my companion laid awake petrified. The tent never moved but in the morning we were the only campers left on that part of the site.
This video is as good as anything although I wouldn't pitch it on a hill! These are written instructions;
Start by stretching out the bottom of the tent into a square, and stake all of the perimeter tentloops to the ground, starting with the corners, with the stakes directed at a 30 to 45 degree angle under the tent, so the tent cannot easily pull them back out. Leave the yellow cords attached to the tentloops loose, so you can use the cords to help pull up the stakes when you take down the tent.
Now assemble the poles going through the loops across the front of the screen porch. Insert one end of a pole #1 into a pole #2 and thread them through the loops over the entrance to the screen porch. Put the long end of a curved pole #3 through the loops starting from one side, and attach to either side of the 1/#2 you made. Put the long end of another #3 through the loops starting from the other side and attach to the loose end of the #1/#2. You should tie the loose green cords on each corner of the sceen porch to the silver metal rings at the curved end of each #3.
Later, you will do the exact same assembly with a #3 on each side of a #1/#2 for the poles going across the back of the tent and the poles going through the pocket across the middle/top of the tent.
Now insert the small end of pole #4 into the curved end of a #3, then insert the small end of a #5 into the open end of the #4. There should be a rubber foot on the bottom of the #5 pole. Do the same thing for the other side of the porch. With help, you should be able to prop up the front of the sceen porch, pulling aganst the stakes holding the rear floor of the tent, and place the rubber feet of the #5 poles close to the center loops of the floor on each side.
Now prepare the #1/#2 poles for the rear, and attach a #3 to each side and tie the loose green cords to the silver rings on the short ends of the #3s. Prepare a #4/#5 pole the same as the front, and prop up the back of the tent, putting the feet near the side loops of the floor which are about 1/3 from the rear of the tent.
Make another #1/#2/#3, and push it through the pocket across the middle of the tent, and connect the last #3 from the other side. The side supports for the middle are pole #8 with the white clamp on the bottom, and pole #7 slid into pole #8 (The #7 was scraped off both of mine). Leave the #7 mostly inserted into the #8 until after the center is lifted up. The #6 goes on top of #7, and insert the #6 into the curved end of the #3 poles which are already in the center pocket, and tie the loose green cords to the silver rings at the short end on each of the #3s. Now lift up the center with someone helping on the other side, and put the feet of the #8 into or near the yellow loops at the center of each side. Loosen the white clamps and extend the #7 poles until the peak of the tent is at proper height.
Move the feet of the #5 poles closer to the tent, until all is tight, and you should be done!
Remove the tent, poles, stakes and tent rope of the dome tent from the Northwest Territory sack. Locate a large flat area and remove any sticks and rocks from the ground.
Lay the tent fabric on the ground with the bathtub style floor face down. Pull the corners of the fabric tight and rotate the tent so the door is facing in the direction you want. Use a hammer to stake the corners in the ground.
Assemble the two long poles to their full length. The pole segments are connected by chords and will easily snap into place. Slide one pole through the diagonal sleeve on the top of the tent. Slide the other pole through the other diagonal sleeve to form an "X" with the poles.
Place the end of each pole in the corresponding grommet. The poles will bend and the shelter will be erected.
Assemble the two small poles. Slide one pole in the doorway sleeve and the other in the back window sleeve. The poles will bend slightly to create a rain peak on the door and window.
Pull the doormat tight and pound stakes through the loops on each corner. Pull the tent rope tight on the back of the tent and pound a stake through the rope loop to anchor the tent to the ground.
