Shelly Beach Starter Shack - a sunny beach starter shack for under 18,500

Requires World Adventures
Built with patch 2.3.33
Uses free CC from Einfach Simlisch

Shelly Beach Starter Shack is a bright and cheerful little starter shack on Recurve Strand (Sunset Valley) costing only 18,492 Simoleons. Perfect for a starter Sim couple. With 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom,an open plan lounge/dining/kitchen, breezy deck (great for watching sunsets) and direct beach frontage for exploring, fishing and hopefully in the near future (come on EA!) swimming!

CC List:

Most of the windows and one exterior door have been created by Einfach Simlisch:

Town Window Build Set

City Window and Door Build Set

An optional item used this lot from Sims Store:
Banquett Fan (EA removed this freebie item, but this light can be replaced by any other cheapie ceiling light already in the game)

Note: you should install the cc windows and door prior to placing the lot in order for the lot to appear as it does in the pictures, otherwise the lot will revert to in-game windows and doors. In order to place this lot at Recurve Strand, first change the empty lot from "community" into "residential" and then place this lot there.

lot size :40x30 (Recurve Strand location in Sunset Valley)
furnished cost: 18,492 (with a whopping 8 simoleons leftover for spending lol)
unfurnished cost: 15,288

Lot Size: 4x3
Lot Price: 18,492

Additional Credits:
Einfach Simlisch for their fabulous windows

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
