Constructed on these tree stumps serving as the foundation and which somehow resemble chicken legs, it seems as if the house is about to walk away.

In Norwegian it is called a "Stabbur". They were used to store food and other items off of the ground and away from animals.

Many people say the structure reminds them of Baba Yaga, a creepy witch in Russian folklore.

She lives deep in the forest in a hut on chicken's legs, and flies around in a giant mortar and pestle instead of on a broom.
