"To get" in this sentenceis not a preposition. It is the infinitive form of a transitive verb synonomous with "arrive.""To our house" is a prepositional phrase that acts as the direct object to the verb "get".

I could tell you how to get to my house. Or I could tell you how to arrive at my house, how to find my house...
