This is the story of how this 850 sq. ft. modern cabin in the forest came to be.
Maricela Salas and Mary McGoff admit they were “naive” about buying raw land before making their purchase of a hillside lot in the Berkshires. It turned out to be too steep and rocky for a traditional foundation. To avoid “blasting” and ruining their beloved refuge, their contractor Arthur Jackson (of The Small Building Company) created piers to perch their cabin like a “treehouse” above the rocky ledge.2
Before they designed and built the cabin, they lived in an Airstream on the property to get to know the land better. Smart! Learn all about the cabin and get the full story by watching the video below.
