    Commission

    Hi,

    What does commission mean in this sentence?

    Michael Yannell is a pharmacist at Rush University Medical Center and the owner of the net zero home and a supporter of green building. He commissioned the house because he wanted to show that homes could have a much smaller environmental impact and still be beautiful.

    Thanks
