The contemporary longhouse is a typical longhouse of the second half of the twentieth century as a result of the upgrading of the traditional longhouses as the natives get modernised.
In fact now there are longhouses in Sarawak that are very modern with modern facilities just like in the urban houses. The one at BTV is a block of two and a half storey building with 24 full standard rooms and 12 attic rooms.
The standard rooms are provided with 2 single beds, dressing table, ensuite separate bathroom and toilet and a wall fan and some rooms with air conditioner. The attic room is provided with mat on the floor, a toilet cum bathroom and a wall fan.
