When Maricela Salas and Mary McGoff purchased a piece of land in the Berkshires, they had no idea that a rocky ledge would complicate construction of the simple house they’d imagined. But it also gave them exactly what they were after: a retreat that immerses them in the natural world.

The kitchen and lofted guest bedroom take cues from urban living—including an apartment-size Summit refrigerator.
A cantilevered cabin designed by R D Gentzler blends into the forest, even as it hovers above a 20-foot drop-off.
Those costs were partially recouped by using knotted pine planks for the exterior.
