1930’s Semi Detached House – hip to tiled gable with flat roof dormer

The owner of this Exeter 1930’s semi-detached house contacted us to quote for a hip to gable and a with flat roof dormer loft conversion. Upon our visit to carry out a free survey we discussed the various options including creating two bedrooms with a shared shower room. Armed with our client’s brief we went away to the drawing board.

The design we provide was to remove the existing hip end and replace with a new gable or “Hip-to-Gable loft conversion”. This would allow the new staircase to continue about the existing set of stairs. In addition to this a flat roof dormer to the rear elevation will allow for an en-suite above the existing bathroom, plus it would dramatically increase the amount of available headroom.

Having looked at the proposal it was decided to reduce one bedroom to a study room and allow the other to become a master bedroom. Both to have access to the shower room.

Final hip to gable loft conversion had a tiled gable along with a tiled flat roof dormer to the rear roof slope. Two Fakro roof windows were positioned to the front roof slope to allow the master bedroom a greater spread of light and ventilation.

As you can see the decorated conversion looks fabulous thanks to the client’s choice of interior decoration ideas including us provide mouldings such as the staircase, door, architrave and skirting’s to match the existing period features. A truly superb loft conversion that will allow the family many years of happy use.
