A Hip to Gable loft conversion is a type of conversion that makes the most out of otherwise wasted space. This type of loft conversion aims to create more head room, which generates extra space and brings more light into the loft area.
The reason it’s known as ‘Hip to Gable’ is because the ridge line of a hip-end roof extends out to make a gable-ended roof. As well as maximising your living space, a good thing about Hip to Gable conversions is that planning permission is not normally required.
The Hip to Gable extends the ridge out to meet the external wall, creating a large space and opening up your options inside. This type of conversion is best for maximising a once unusable space.
Hip to Gable conversions are typical of semi-detached properties, and houses with a hip-end roof. They are also suitable for a range of other properties.
