The province's allotment garden houses
There was a big difference in the first beach houses. There were big differences between the early constructions. Some were simply sheds, where there was just enough room to change clothes, while others resembled little holiday houses. These were houses that could be used for leisure - a bit like the allotment garden houses in the big cities, whose building style they resemble.
The very first beach houses were built at the end of a bathing jetty, but eventually the beach houses were just placed on the beach.
There were no rules that regulated the construction, and no requirements were made for design or color choice, however, it is suspected that there have been some unwritten rules that had to be met with regard to the location.
As the beach houses spread, some of the simpler sheds disappeared, and many were even equipped with a small porch.
