Danish 101 - The Summer House

Under Danish law you are only allowed to own one untenanted house, but you are allowed one "Summer house". Think Ozzie beach shack, UK holiday cottage or NZ Batch these are usually situated somewhere on the coast and usually small. The catch is you are not allowed to officially live in it and are only allowed to stay during the six months of summer. 

You can own other properties but they must be rented ie they are considered business investments. As far as I can fathom its basically designed to ensure rich bastards don't have five huge houses sitting idle and people with no home. It also promotes the time with family and take a real holiday theme by making a small (some are log cabin sized) holiday house more affordable.

Cool idea
