Benefits of a Summerhouse – Are summerhouses worth it?

Have you ever looked into the benefits of a summerhouse?

Summerhouses are holiday homes that people use in the summertime. They can be made from any material, though wooden buildings are most common.

People choose to live and sleep in a summer house during the warmer seasons because they want to experience something different than in their permanent homes. Many people go on vacation in summer, and some stay at their holiday home all season long or return there for weekends and holidays.

People with permanent houses often move into a smaller, simpler living accommodation when they retire. The best candidates for summer houses are single-story houses without stairs up to the bedrooms or wide roofs, which require much maintenance work throughout the week.

Wooden houses are popular due to good insulation

The summer house has been a staple of Norwegian culture for many years. Some only use the summer house seasonally, while some people have full-time residences in their summer homes.

There are three main types of houses that create the essence of what is meant by ‘summer houses’: cabins, cottages, and villas. Cabins are cozier than luxurious; families might use these on vacation or children on school break. Cottages are slightly larger than cabins but still small enough to comfortably fit in most backyards; these can be found along coasts and lakes throughout Norway. Villas are the largest summer house type, with multiple bedrooms (at least 3) and sometimes an additional guest home on the property. These are often found in coastal regions or other areas that attract wealthy vacationers.
