    Looking at buying a detached house that has a Hip roof, Its crying out for a 2 storey rear extension.

    What are the options for the roof style for this kind of extension, extension approx 10m wide x 5m deep, original house appox 10m wide, 6m Deep.

    Methods which have been used include: having a double-hip roof on the rear extension, with a valley between; or a simple
    flat roof on the top, at the level of the existing ridge.

    One option is to give us an idea about the house style if you want some sort of meaningful answer.
