Architectural Permits and Fees

I'm always looking for new ways for my simmies to suffer, I mean, live. I've been upset that remodels don't cost anywhere near as much as they do in real life and often sims can get paid when they remodel-what?!?!?!

So I'm introducing a system of permits and fees for remodels done in my hood. The fees will help it to be a bit more realistic and will force some of my families to either work with what they have, save up to make big changes or move.

Tour: Celsius 82°

Here are some photos of my grilled cheese place. I would love to have some recolors of the 3to2 sandwich board conversion to go with the grilled cheese vibe, but until then, here's what I did. Took me about 30 minutes to build after an hour commute in which I planned out most of the details. I'm insanely proud of the fact that I fit a bathroom on the lot  It's a 1x1 lot and I might have a sim buy it so that I can set the menu to only cheese items, grilled cheese and maybe cheesecake. Until then, I replaced the podium with a modded buffet table.

Celsius 82°, the melting point of cheese, is where you will find plenty of melted cheese at this grilled cheese specialty diner.
