I've done something like this on the cheap by putting an older single-wide mobile home on a piece of land, and removing all of the interior walls (none of which are load-bearing in these homes). I left the bathroom walls up and built the back of the shower (interior wall) of glass brick. Laminate "hardwood" floors and some paint, and I've got a 1000 square foot 'loft' for less than 10,000 bucks. Works fine for one person, with plenty of room for my digital photography workspace.
