This conservatory still seems modern by today’s standards. Copper clads the sink and window sill, which slants slightly toward a small drain. When plants on the sill are watered, the excess drains through a pipe leading to outdoor landscaping. Loose wooden floorboards lie like trap doors over a zinc subfloor. They could be lifted wherever Winchester wanted to set her exotic indoor trees and other plants to ease watering and prevent damage to the wood. Runoff flowed to a drain in the zinc and then to the outdoors.Winchester was apparently ahead of her time in conserving water in drought-stricken California.See how Winchester communicated with her staff members when they were many rooms away

This is awesome! Love the copper sink and copper on the windowsills, and not to mention a sink floor! This is amazing!
