One of the most common loft conversions in the United Kingdom and especially in the city of Newcastle in 2018 is a hip to gable loft conversion. While it may sound more complicated and complex of a loft conversion than it sounds, it is the simplest type of loft conversion that is available within the city of Newcastle and the world. While other loft conversions can provide an extension of space within the loft itself, a hip to gable loft conversion is simplified due to the lack of construction that is necessary in comparison to other loft conversions. While a hip to gable loft conversion doesn’t provide the same amount of space a mansard or dormer loft conversion could provide a home owner, a hip to gable loft conversion provides as much space as possible that already exists.
A hip to gable loft conversion requires the least amount of construction than any other loft conversion, meaning it requires the least number of tools and almost no machinery required. It also means that if you are a home owner this would be the simplest loft conversion with your home, as it is very well suited to home owners despite the size and shape of your home. Due to the low amount of construction that is necessary to create the hip to gable loft conversion, the most important aspect for the construction phase are the tools themselves. While you don’t necessarily need some machinery or equipment such as electric drills and the like, they can speed the process up quickly.
Hip to gable loft conversions also provide home owners with a decent amount of additional living space within the loft. They can provide anything from an additional room such as a home cinema or video game room to three rooms such as a bedroom, bathroom and an additional hobby room. Since most lofts are already shaped like a box or triangle, there may be some limitations in terms of the use you can get out of the room. This is mostly dependent on what you are looking for from the loft conversion however. If you aren’t interested in a large amount of rooms or a niche or luxury room, then you can make great use out of a room despite the shape. A triangle shaped bedroom and bathroom is still very suitable for the ones who are using the room.
Finally, a hip to gable loft conversion is very cheap relative to other loft conversion ideas that are available. A mansard or a dormer loft conversion can be very expensive due to the amount of materials that are required to complete the conversion itself. The overall cost of raw materials for each loft conversion that requires an extension can make the conversion out of budget for many home owners. That is also without factoring the amount of time that it would take to complete each loft conversion. With a hip to gable loft conversion however, the overall speed that it could be completed in is both efficient and entirely suitable for most home owners.
