The kitchen island in Palmisano's own home is one of her favorite spots in her house. The top of the island was made from salvaged Douglas fir railroad trusses, found in a 19th-century building torn down in a neighboring town. Believe it or not, the soapstone sink, backsplash, refrigerator, and clock were also salvaged — an effort that saved money but still has a clean, high-end appearance.
