Gable-End Loft Conversions

Gable-end loft conversions add extra living space to the side of a detached or semi-detached homes.

These typically have a sloping slide, ‘hipped’ roof – by extending the side gable and bringing the roof line out to create a new flat or pitched roof and vertical wall. This is sometimes combined with a rear dormer to provide a significant amount of additional space. A double hip to gable conversion would extend to both sides. Typically this can accommodate two medium size rooms and WC or landing, or a master bedroom suite with full bathroom. By creating additional space to the side, the staircase to the loft conversion can usually be a continuation of the existing staircase.

Under recent planning permission updates, in Sussex these types of conversions now often fall under ‘permitted development’, so do not require planning. This makes them an excellent option to add significant value and space to your home, which can eliminate the need to move house to accommodate a growing family. As well as semi-detached and detached properties, these types of conversions are sometimes possible with mid-terraces and bungalows.

“Carlsberg don’t rip down badly built dormers and rebuild them, but if they did… Sam and his team have been first rate throughout the work. Helpful, friendly, tidy and the quality of the joinery is outstanding. The furrings on the roof and the way they hipped the edges is a woody work of art. I did almost have to throw Dave off the scaffolding for singing along to Nickelback but he’s a bit handy with a circular saw so I thought better of it. Can’t recommend these guys enough, they’ve scored a fair bit of extra work on my house now too.”
