The aim of this page is to help you create your dream custom-made garden room, garage conversion or any other small conversion. Also will show you all the bespoke projects that we were involved in and the steps that were taken to complete each project. We will lead you through each stage of the architectural process, simplifying the entire procedure. From concept to completion, Clive Anderson Furniture will steer you through to realizing your dream project.

People are influenced by television, advertisements, books, magazine articles and friends. Ask yourself: why are you doing this? What are your underlying objectives? At what level will the cost not be worthwhile? How much of this is about investment and resale – and how much is about what you want for yourself?

Many people jump into a project with both feet and find themselves in the middle of a great tangle of questions that they never imagined and that need instant decisions. Conflicting issues, cost problems, regulations that have not been considered in advance, delay and many more such problems can arise. As a result will lead to time overruns, unsatisfactory results, wasted money and unnecessary stress.
Consequently it is important to go through an orderly, step by step design process that will deal with all aspects of your proposal.
