History of the Mission House
The mission house style was first developed in the Western U.S. around the year 1800. This house style started to take root in the West as settlers became aware of the cultural and architectural past of the region. They then decided to incorporate some of these elements when building their homes, copying the style of old mission churches in the area.

Characteristics of the Mission House
There are a few design elements that really help the mission house stand out and embody the mission church style. Mission style homes are often built with a hip roof that has tile. They are also easily recognizable by their stucco walls and arched doors and windows. Casement windows with small panes of glass and a front door with many panels are also common features of the mission house.

Remodeling your St. Cloud home with a mission house design is sure to bring new life and flavor to the neighborhood.
