Yes.
1st : The word come will be converted into go according to Sadaat's Exploring the world of english (chapter 15) plus it's also mentioned in Oxford english book.
2nd : We also avoid to use multiple conditional structures(whether or if) in one sentence and try to combine them by introducing conjunction or phrase.....! (Since its not mentioned in the book, but common observation)

According to Sadaat's, NO change will be made in cases where reports are made at the time of the speech or where the object of speech are present at the time of reporting.
here house is present at the time of reporting so, no change should be made.
Seniors can elaborate with examples.
