Once upon a time there lived miners in these tiny houses. Built against the rocks with their roofs nearly reaching the clouds, the locals called them "birdhouses". Maybe these workers compensated their hard days under the ground with their homes in the sky, dreaming of a better life... I hope they made their dreams come true.
Nowadays, other workers are renovating them, probably to make holiday homes of it.
