Loft Height 2.15m - Any creative solutions?

Post by Omariqy » Thu Oct 14, 2021 12:20 pm

Hi all

We are really keen to get a hip to gable loft conversion done on our 1930s semi detached house. We had a company come in who measured the height from top of joists to ridge using a laser. They said the height is about 2.15m and that the only way to get the 2m clearance would be to lower the ceilings below. Whilst I am not averse to paying the additional cost to do this. The hassle of having to renovate all the rooms below and having to move out of the house is putting me off. Are there any creative solutions to do the conversion and maintain the required clearance?

Many thanks

Hi omariqy
Since the roof is going to have to be removed to do the conversion (at least in part) it may be more economic and doable by increasing the height of the party wall with next door and raising the whole roof.
