There are drains in the tile floor for watering the plants that get their sunshine through the tall windows.

From the library you enter into the hallway and to the mud room. At the end of the exposed stonewall hallway is the butler's kitchen. Thru the butlers kitchen you enter into the homes main kitchen.
