Adding a sunroom to the gable end provides a blank canvas as there are no height restrictions but when designing a sunroom for the area of the house limited by fascia and soffit height there are a few clever design concepts that can be used.
If the width of the room is less than 5m then you can consider creating a false gable in the house roof which will create the required height for the sunroom roof.
However once the room is wider than 5m we will normally use a ‘hip-back’ sunroom design. This option has some advantages. The design will allow for a longer sunroom to be built as there are no width limitations, the roof is joined to the house roof using a valley which allows for the addition of roof windows to the rear which will allow more light into the inside rooms of the house
