Currently inhabited by a pair of old couples (Mr. Chau and his wife) in their 90s, their residence has exemplified the traditional layout of a squatter home. Of all segregated rooms, the kitchen is particularly unique as it has maintained its primal look. While the exterior wall is cladded with wooden planks, the rooftop is covered by metal sheets, with elongated wood beams that add support to its interior structure. A vintage brick stove is set up inside the kitchen, and a concrete chimney is positioned against the wall. Firewood is used conventionally as fuel not just for cooking, but also to prepare water for a hot bath that takes place next to the stove. To reduce their electricity costs, the couple would still make use of this customary method to heat up the water instead of using modern gas water heater. It is interesting to note that a simple shrine and fai chun are decorated above the ledge, which represent the Kitchen God (aka Stove God) who watches over the family.

A brick stove inside the farmhouse kitchen remains to be the main cooking equipment for the Mr. and Mrs. Chau, owners of this residence.
