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.

We are extremely proud that our very own Hood Council President overcame it all!

Laci was glad to finally be done with university, even if it only meant that she was now in vet school doing her graduate studies. She missed Zhou and hoped that he would return to Apple Valley soon, but he was busy teaching abroad and fulfilling his obligation. When organizations pay for your tuition, they want their investment returned.
