Nice house


Many of the houses of Gilleleje are nice ones, like this with its roof of straw, white chalked walls and red gables. In Denmark a lot of money go into maintaining these old houses and if it's a protected house, the owner can get tax reductions for the expense of maintaining it. With the prices for work done by carpenters, plumbers and bricklayers the tax reduction is necessary for many if they're to afford to have a house like this.
