Loft types

Hip-to-gable conversion

A hip-to-gable conversion means building up the end wall to create a gable wall that meets the ridge at the top, which has been extended from its existing position. This increases the internal volume and height of the loft, and dormers can also be added to create character and make the most of the space. This type of conversion can result in much more space than a standard dormer conversion, potentially housing two new rooms and a bathroom, as well as more standing room and space for the staircase to be fitted. A hip-to-gable conversion is usually done at the back of a property to avoid planning permission objections.
