Why is it "inside" and not "into the house" or "home"?

If I am to trust the authenticity of this example, I am led to believe this:

that this is merely a common phrase that doesn't translate word-for-word that well into English

'go into the house' is fine, and is identical to 'go inside' in English.

Then how do you say: "We should have gone inside"?

Is this different to "wir sollen ins Haus gehen"?

I'm really confused as to what it means by past tense

Ahh I think I get it; We were supposed to (past) go in the house (present).

Correct me if I'm wrong.
