Eleventh Kim's family started living in the house. It was constructed in 1726, and has undergone many times of remodeling.
Women and men's quarters form an enclosed square, and servants' quarters and the gate form another separate building. Women's quarters form several wings with 6 rooms. Daily appliances are stocked in the women's room and women's living room. A family shrine is in the main floored room.
In the room across the main living room, you can see sliding paper windows and a closet for keeping books, gowns, and hats as well. A top light on the kitchen wall shows there were equipments and appliances for a house in a mountain village. A T-shape fence made of shutters and mud with tiles on it separates the space where the right side is for men and the left is for women. This kind of house is only found in Gangwon-do province.
