History

The house of Ilmi Rrustemi is located in the village of Kokaj, municipaltiy of Gjilan. According to family members of this house, this building was built around 1947, shortly after WWII. The house although quite damaged, still preserves the original condition. The building belongs to the home type. It was built with stones, mainly non-hewn ones, as well as with wooden beams, and belongs to the rustic technique (peasant). The house has two floors: the ground floor and top floor. In the ground floor, through the hallway gets to two rooms, while on the left is the basement. Even the top floor has the hallway and two rooms that also have chimneys. Each room has a window from the front side, while the hallways have a small window at the back, all of the rectangular shape. They are made of wood, and are original ones. The house has no longer doors, because they are heavily damaged. On the perimeter wall, on the ground floor, the house has a small balcony which stands on three wooden beams that emerge from the wall, while two wooden pillars hold the roof of the balcony. The roof is hipped, covered with roof tiles, and has an about 60cm awning that emerges from the walls externally. The house is not habitable today.
