If you want to convert your loft space even though it doesn’t currently offer you enough room, a gable up (or hip-to-gable) loft conversion could be the perfect solution.
Many homes have ‘hipped’ roofs with a sloping side. What a hip-to-gable loft conversion does is replace that sloping roof with a vertical wall at the end (otherwise known as the ‘gable’). This vertical wall stands at the same height as the ridge along the roof, providing valuable additional space. If your property has two sloping sides to its roof, then a double hip-to-gable loft conversion is another possibility.
Then, it’s up to you what you decide to do with the space. There are many different choices – you could use it as a games room, a home entertainment room, an additional bedroom, a kids’ playroom or a study/office space. It’s entirely up to you. A hip-to-gable loft conversion ensures that you have plenty of room to use the converted loft space as you see fit.
You don’t generally need planning permission for gable up loft conversions as they usually fall under the permitted development category. However, there are some exceptions – homes in designated conservation areas, for example, are likely to need planning permission. Also, all loft conversion work has to be compliant with building regulations. At Econoloft, we know exactly how to navigate the planning and regulatory system, and we’ll take care of that on your behalf – saving you much time and hassle.

A loft conversion is a much more cost-effective option than moving home, particularly in the current property climate and an extra bedroom and ensuite remain the most popular loft conversion especially in areas of the country where prices are at a premium. What’s more, making your three bedroom home a four bedroom home, can add anything up to 15 or 20 percent to its value depending on where you live.
