Sisko had planned to build a house on Bajor as early as 2372, as he grown to love the planet and the Bajoran people. He would relate this to Admiral William Ross in 2374. (DS9 novel: The 34th Rule, DS9 episode: "Favor the Bold")
Sisko bought the twelve hecapate site south of the Yolja River in 2375, where Sisko planned to build a home which he would visit on weekends when the Dominion War ended and later for a place for he and Kasidy Yates to retire to. He later built a model of it to illustrate what the house would look like. (DS9 episodes: "Penumbra", "'Til Death Do Us Part")
After Sisko's disappearance in the Fire Caves after fighting Skrain Dukat, Jake suggested his father might be in the land he had bought for his house. After it was discovered his father had joined the Prophets, Jake finished the model by adding its roof. (DS9 episode: "What You Leave Behind")
By the following April construction of the house was finished, one of the final elements being a rare wood burning stove acquired for Sisko by Quark. Sisko himself was spending time with the Prophets but the house was still lived in by his then pregnant wife Kasidy. (DS9 novel: Avatar, book One)
The house later became a place of pilgrimage and wonder to several Bajorans. Some would visit to offer comfort to Kasidy while she felt others were just nosy. The inhabitants of the surrounding area came to respect Kasidy's wishes to be left alone and would often not tell visitors the location of the house. Vedek Yevir Linjarin visited the house to seek Kasidy's guidance on finding his place in life. (DS9 novel: This Gray Spirit)
At his return from a several month adventure in the Gamma Quadrant Jake Sisko made his way to the house to visit Kasidy. Shortly after the pair were joined by the O'Brien family and Joseph and Judith Sisko who had come from Earth to visit Kasidy as she neared the birth of her baby. The reunion was rudely interrupted when a group of parasite infested monks kidnapped the Sisko family as hostages in parasite's scheme to take control of Bajor.
Kasidy's daughter, Rebecca Jae Sisko, was born while the family were held hostage, and at the same time Benjamin Sisko returned from his time with the Prophets. The complete Sisko family then returned to live in the house. (DS9 novel: Unity)
Not long after the house bore witness to another expansion to the Sisko family when Jake returned from another adventure, this time on Bajor, with his new wife Azeni Korena. (DS9 novel: Bajor: Fragments and Omens)
