This puts a limit on the degree of space that is readily available for a loft conversion, and one way to get around this is to opt for a "hip-to-gable" loft conversion, which is a neat solution to this dilemma. To all intents and purposes, this turns a hip end into a gable end (flipping the slope into a vertical), consequently generating more space that can be transformed into a useful extra room. It's possible that you could have two hipped ends, if your home is a detached property, which means you can create even more space by doing a double hip-to-gable conversion. On the whole hip to gable conversions fall under the "permitted developments" category, and don't require planning permission, nonetheless you should still check with your local authority or planning department to be on the safe side. If you've got an end of terrace property with a hipped roof in Cupar, you might also be able to carry out a hip-to-gable loft conversion. Due to the additional structural work that is required, hip-to-gable conversions are normally more pricey than other styles of conversion (twenty percent extra in some cases).
