    Hello Everyone,

    I am a builder in Essex, UK. I also operate a DIY home renovation blog called Warton Woodworks. My goal is to provide useful information to the trade, and DIY enthusiasts.

    Recently I uploaded one of my loft conversion projects. It contains many images of a hip to gable loft conversion process, from design to completion.

    Hopefully you will find this post helpful and interesting. It contains the following:
    • Drawings of the original bungalow
    • Drawings of the bungalow hip to gable loft conversion
    • Step-by-step images of all work carried out
    More images will be uploaded in the future.

    Kind regards,

    Good stuff but I would always want to see the foundation check done as the first step in case something nasty turns up.

    Hi Guys,

    I thought you may also be interested to watch a You Tube video of this hip to gable loft conversion. It shows the steel and timber construction of the roof.

    Stevie22: Yes, I agree with you. In fact the foundations were indeed checked just after erecting the scaffolding. I have rearranged the images on my website to show the true sequence of events (as accurate as possible).

    Kind Regards,
