I think it is because their doors and window openings are smaller than normal. They also dont place them at the same level as we are use too. I think thats why it looks like a high school project.

Hey Mette, these are the homes of the Anasazi Indians. This is a link to the parks website. Check it out, it is a cool place. :-))

And 'cool' is the operative word I reckon. Those people knew how to beat the heat.
