Help! I need cheap work space! Answered

Please help! I need room to work in. I live in a very crowded double wide with 4 kids and a spouse. I need space to myself and my artwork before I go mad or am forced to quit my beloved arts. I paint, make jewelry - both metal and pottery- this means fire and small kilns. I have a back porch and it is very small with an roof over half of it. I have almost 0 money. How can I have a workspace? With the kilns I can work thru winter (in the south- sorry to be a stereotype). I was thinking hoop house with one side being the roof of my house. Perhaps extending the porch, with donated or used lumber- to give me more space- but the enclosure is an issue. I need light and I need to be closed off from bugs. I can lay in a window cooling unit and a space heater. Please- Ya'll are geniuses! Please tell me how I can do this. I will go mad if I cannot have my art and my space!

I found a large 10 x 20 tent used for weddings and such for $250 including tax. It seems to be working so far. there is a lumber sale at HD- Im having visions of a real floor.

Thanks to everyone

Gosh. I can maybe scrape up $200. The shed like things don't let in light and air. Im considering finding pre- used lumber and extending my porch and then figure out how to cover it. IDK.

I would think of a cheap shed-like thing in the back yard, which you could make out of what ever you can get your hands on pretty much.
