Tiny prefabricated cabin has a Scottish Highlands flavor
In 2011, artist Bobby Niven and architect Iain MacLeod installed an artist residence in the Scottish Highlands that's based on the bothy, a traditional British and Irish hut used to shelter laborers, hill walkers and the like. Its popularity helped spawn successors and the project has now evolved into Bothy Stores, which offers a tiny house/cabin with similar styling for sale.
The Artist Bothy takes up a physical footprint of 5.5 x 3 m (18 x 9.84 ft) and comprises just 12.25 sq m (131 sq ft) of floorspace. Its interior is simple and essentially consists of just one large room. Optional furniture includes a ladder that reaches a small loft bedroom area, a bench bed, table, small kitchenette, and a shelving unit.
The Artist Bothy has no bathroom or even a toilet inside as standard, though the firm can recommend a composting toilet if required – still, this is obviously not intended as a full-time standalone home.
The dwelling is clad in corrugated Corten steel, which has a rusted look, as well as Scottish larch, with double-glazed windows and wood fiber insulation. The interior is finished in cross-laminated timber, with an oak floor. According to the firm, the prefabricated dwelling can be installed within hours once delivered on-site.
The Artist Bothy has fittings for both electric and water, and can also be wired up to solar panels for an off-grid setup. Integrated water drainage can be hooked up to a rainwater collection system and a chimney is fitted to enable the installation of a wood-burning stove.
The Artist Bothy is available from £39,000 (US$55,000).

Make it 5-10k and it will be realistic.
A shed the size of a large bedroom. Steel sheet, timber frame, insulation and ply lining. Double glazed windows and insulated doors aren't that special in Europe (de rigour)..
Here we line sheds in zinc coated steel and the rusted look means it is getting closer to being replaced or demolished.
Ok they need the 45k in profit as they only expect to sell 4, and it is art after all.
