Changing gable over hip roof to gable end


On one side of my roof there is a small gable end over a small hip roof. I want to move my kitchen cabinets to that wall but the ceiling is about a foot lower than the rest of the house because of the hip roof rafters. Is there a way I can add a gable end to the roof and then remove the hip rafters so I can raise the ceiling?

Are you trying to raise the height of the ceiling to attach upper cabinets?
If what I read into this is right,and you need to raise the ceiling for the upper cabinets, than you'll also have to raise the height of the walls.
Do you have any Pics?

I'll get some pictures to illustrate how it is currently. What is the best way to add images, insert image or attach the file?
