Due to the nephew, Mr. Kantasom Noppawong Na Ayudhaya has redesigned this house by focusing on original house characteristic as well as the authentic of living space both in interior and exterior. For example teak flooring, teak doors and windows are well preserved as it was in the past. Wide-screen light channel had been added with light clear glass for air-conditioned, overlapping-scales rubber wood walls were converted into the ceiling and reorganizing some part to create double volume space as the lobby.
