There was once a sliding door between the main and the women's living room, and now the main room is being used as dining room. In the upper room which once had the old wall closet, usually seniors were staying there that it has a crude window with a small frame and a wooden veranda on one side. There is a narrow gate beside the main gate exclusively for women.

Kitchen has cement floor and men's quarters' are finished with mortar having wooden verandas. Single door sliding door is connecting the two men's rooms. On the right side of men's quarters is the main gate.Another wing where a barn and a warehouse are located is added at right angles to men's quarters.
