it'll be based on a number of things like ur state regs what your sponsor wants, and how creative you are. I would strongly urge against building a mews until you have a sponsor as well. But i've built one for around $2000 another one around $100(weathering area) and a whole bunch in between.

I'm sorry, but you said "it's impossible" when you really meant "I don't know how yet".
Mine's a 8x12, which includes a 4x8 workroom/double door area and an 8x8 chamber. Most of the materials used were donated to me. With work and materials that absolutely had to be bought, I'd say I didn't put more than $500 dollars into my mews, and it's worked nice for me!
If you can find used, but decent and reliable material for free/donation, use that! Just make sure you clean it off really well before you hammer it up.
It may take longer to gather the materials, but it's well worth it to me.

Just go around town and look for the house construction sites. Ask nicely to talk with the constructor on the site and ask for building materials wastes...such as left over 2x4's ... for recycling purpose. if it's not enough, find another sites... 'till you get enough materials to build a mews. You can build your mews for totally free.
