how do i make a modular dwelling fast, without a ton of money? Answered

i need to get away from my parents sometimes to make my music and art and to do homework, but sometimes my room just isn't enough. i've read tons about modular dwellings- small shed-like houses you can build in you backyard. can anyone help me? i'd like to do be small (under 10 x 10) and make with a sleeping loft and a sliding door in the front. any help would be greatly appreciated!

If you have space and a little cash then look at buying/leasing a shipping container. there are millions of them unused in every country. They have been used for accommodation.

e.g. http://cubeme.com/blog/2007/05/08/container-home-kit-by-lot-ek/

as a cheaper DIY alternative look at http://www.desertdomes.com/ With a little ingenuity this makes a big modern space for very little material.
