Most properties have a regular, 'hipped' roof with a sloping side. This means existing loft space is often limited, making it difficult to create a loft conversion without extending your property. This is where hip to gable loft extensions come in.

 

This type of loft conversion extends your property on the sloping side, effectively replacing the sloping roof with a vertical wall (the gable) at the end to the same height as the ridge, and filling in the space in between. The added space can then be used for whatever purpose you see fit, although typically its for a master bedroom with en-suite.
