So, the first Sims 2 Challenge I pulled out of my folder was "Renovator's Delight". Now, I know we have some floating around out there already for Sims 4, but this will be different, I promise.

My new challenge will be called "Renovation Time"
This challenge can get quite involved when it comes to Sims 4 and goals, aspirations, etc. So, I think it should be as involved or not depending on where you want to go with it. I will keep it simple, because I'm bored with this already and I've not even begun!!

You will need a married couple. Their life long ambition, dream or whatever you want to call it is to host the perfect dinner party in their new home.

They've run into a few problems, though. They just moved. Not only that, the house they purchased was sight unseen.
Your married couple will need to be placed in Willowcreek in the Crick Cabana.
The couple won't have much money left and will both need jobs. Their money will go on renovating the home.

As they earn enough funds, the home will need to be renovated into a nice house the two would be proud to call their home and invite the neighbors, friends and family into. One they can host their perfect dinner party at.

They don't plan on having children, but, during renovation, a 2nd bedroom could be added, just in case. Accidents do happen. Other than that, a large Chef's kitchen with a large formal dining room will be a must for this dinner party the two have in mind. They will also need to pay attention to the outside of their home. It needs to include a garden so everything they cook and serve will be fresh and organic.

A list of things to accomplish besides the renovation project.

1. Fishing - Angling Ace?
2. Gardening - Free Lance Botanist?
3. Interested in Food
4. Neat (Good keeping things clean)
5. Cooking - Chef?
6. One of the foods this couple should be able to cook and serve by party time is Lobster Thermidor
7. Is there a Garden Club? If not - maybe they should form one?
8. Have parties! Lots of parties. They may need the practice, since their life long goal is to have a great dinner party.
9. Entertainment - They should entertain. I realize this may fall under parties. But are they the same? Just because they might throw a great party, does not necessarily mean they are great at entertainment.
10. Renovate home and yard to accommodate their desire to Fish, Garden, Clean, Cook, Entertain and Party.

Questions? I know I do. I have a lot of questions, since the above doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Maybe it will become clearer as I play - if I play to try to accomplish the list. I think I will add - must have 2nd bedroom - this couple may need to have a toddler. :yeah:

The low-down cheat who sold the Crick Cabana to the McCormack's on-line, unseen, because they trusted him.
