This is a community lot I built for my apocalypse hood. The building is in pretty good repair, having been built to withstand the centuries, and has been re-purposed to replace venues which did not survive.

Pasted from my starter community lots upload:
Phaenoh's version of the Apocalypse Challenge requires community lots, where sims have to 'apply' for their careers, and where the restrictions for that career are relaxed temporarily. The idea is that your neighbourhood will be gradually built up, from a wasteland to a functioning town, as the restrictions are lifted. The challenge also divides the careers into three tiers. All of the careers for Tier 1 have to be lifted before you can start on Tier 2. Lots are allowed to flout restrictions for the career/s they represent. As careers are lifted, lots should be built or upgraded to fit the more relaxed rules.

Phaenoh provided some beginning lots herself, and linked suitable ones made by others, in her information thread. There are many great lots there already.

However, most apocalypse lots rely very heavily on custom content to get 'the look'. I wanted to see what could be done with EA content. Many of them are also very large. I prefer smaller lots, so I can see what is happening and my computer is happier.

Now, this particular lot:
The 'real' Town Hall did not survive the disaster, so the local bigwigs have taken over this much older — but sturdy! - building while they wait for new premises. Space is limited, but they are making do.

Downstairs is reception, while upstairs has a meeting room, with a big table and whatever chairs could be scrounged. There is coffee in the corner and take-out ready on the table, to keep the politicians going through the longest conferences.

The loo is in the little shed out the back, but don't try the other door — it will be locked, and you don't need to know.

For those playing Phaenoh's challenge, this lot covers the Politics and Criminal careers for Tier 2. It seemed appropriate to put them together...

The Tiny Town Hall has been shrunk using Moo's LotAdjuster, so the outer walls are closer to the edge of the lot than is usual. If you wish to alter the building, you will probably also need to use the LotAdjuster to do so. (Wall coverings are not affected, so repaint as much as you like.)

The CFE cheat was used in building the stairs, so there is some distortion in the walls in that area.

Tiny Town Hall is a 1x2 lot, CC-free. A copy of the lot has been tested by my sims.

The lot has been provided with one hidden pool tile, to enable water-shading mods.

I use a number of defaults and neighbourhood deco which you may see in screenshots.
