What are hip to gable loft conversions?

A “hipped” roof is a roof that has a sloping side to it, therefore a hip to gable loft conversion can be carried out on properties that have these types of roofs, which are normally found on detached or semi-detached properties.

How is a hip to gable loft conversion constructed?

The hipped end of the roof is extended and built into a gable roof, creating a flat, vertical wall.  This extends the internal loft, generating extra space.

If you are looking to generate even more space in your loft conversion, then a hip to gable conversion is often combined with a dormer conversion.   For more information visit dormer loft conversions.

This combination results in a large and airy space:
