What is a hip to gable loft conversion?

For detached or semi-detached homes with a hip roof, a hip to gable conversion is always a popular alternative. A hipped roof has a slanted side in addition to the slopes at the front and back of the building. You build the bottom of the side slope up vertically and extend the existing ridge to create a gable end when doing a hip to gable. This greatly expands your existing loft space, frequently giving enough for a new stairs. A hip to gable is not ideal for mid-terraced homes because of its design, which would never have a hip end roof.

Because you’re stretching out the side-sloped roof on hip to gable conversions, you get a lot more living space. Hip to gable loft conversions can also be paired with rear dormer and L-shaped loft conversions, allowing you to fully realize the potential of your home.
