Hip To Gable on a Semi Detached House
A Hip to gable construction was the best design for this property to give the client the maximum amount of space in the loft conversion. Due to existing height within the existing Loft together with wider than average width of the property.
The work had to be completed as soon as possible due as the loft conversion would be transformed into new living space for the family.
Our client’s wanted the loft conversion for a number of reasons; the lady of the house wanted a large luxurious bedroom with lots of light, folding glass doors and ample wardrobe space. The man of the house wanted a ceiling mounted TV screen so he could watch TV in bed.
They had recently had the brickwork sand blasted and re-pointed to bring back the original colour of the London Stock bricks to the outside of their house. It was important to them that the gable end matched the cleaned brickwork. We were able to achieve this with careful matching of new imperial sized bricks.
Absolute Lofts completed the project within approximately 12 weeks.
Within 12 weeks we had a surprisingly large loft bedroom for a semi detached. We’re really pleased with the results and it looks as though it is an original part of the house. Absolute lofts were helpful, polite and professional throughout and were very conscious of our children running around and making sure the house was safe when they left in the evening.
