Help me put up a fence and make some renovations

As most of you know, I make specialty cheesecake. Up until now I've been baking and selling to friends. However, I moved into a neighborhood that consists of mostly one family. The neighbors that I have that are not family, are friends and are amazing. However, this one family has made my life hell. They've gone as far as coming to my house to yell and complain and even told me when I first moved in that a fence was out of the question because "they never have fences here". Recently, on their list was to get me in trouble with the county for making cake for you guys. I was selling with the assumption that I was working under the Virginia cottage law. However, even though pastries are listed, with further research, I found out cheesecakes are not. So, what that means is that I would have to have a business license and inspection done at my house. It requires some renovations including doors being built in between the kitchen and other parts of the house. I also would like to put that fence up, mostly out of spite. To get these things done and rolling so I can get back to making cheesecake as soon as possible, I need some help. Typically, I would never ask for donations. However, in this case, this is my passion. Anything helps. Thank you for taking the time to read.
