Keadaan ini telah diatasi dengan menggantikan tingkap kayu yang baru dengan menggunakan bahan yang sama||Beginilah keadaan tingkap yang telah diganti dan dibaik pulih serta di cat|
|Beginilah keadaan lantai papan setelah lapisan permaidani dibuka sewaktu kerja-kerja baikpulih sedang dilakukan. Ruang ini asalnya adalah Balairong Seri||Lantai papan yang telah dibaiki disapu dengan lapisan syelek dan tidak ditutupi dengan permaidani kerana ia boleh merosakan papan lantai. Mengikut kajian permaidani dipasang sewaktu bangunan ini dijadikan Maahad Tahfiz|
