Building a Simple Structure in Sims 4 Using the Roof Tool
For a video by LadyGee go to How to Build a Free House

*This will provide privacy for the privy (a toilet located in a small shed outside a house or other building; an outhouse).
But most likely will not protect against weather.
Living on the open lot is not really an issue. Even the toilet can be in the open unless two or more Sims live on the lot.
LadyGee demonstrates in her story Where's My House (Homeless) that a building is not necessary to survive on an open lot.
Here is a picture version of how to make a 'nearly' free structure for your Sim.

Start with Gabled Roof. Using the Arrows pull the sides and peak to adjust width and height.
My pictures do not start with floor but you can place the free 'room' first.

Select the Gable Roof and place anywhere on the lot.

Use the Arrows to adjust width, length and height. In this example I only adjusted the height.

To create the dome shape pull up on the the round ball shape. 
Pushing down will create a pagoda effect.

Pull the top arrow until the center 'wall' is the height of a single wall panel.
You will know it is the right size if a single door fits in the space.

Test the space. Since my first structure was only to provide bathroom privacy I placed a toilet to test.
This example allows for a usable 1x3 space.

**Side Note**
I tested the cost of a single height wall vs a double or triple height wall.
The cost remains the same. You can also place a single wall then drag from that wall to make a room.

Oh, thank you! I knew that there must be some trick to it! I've been using the half gable instead of the gable!
Thanks so much!

You are Welcome

I experimented with the other pieces and the Gable roof works the best for this trick.
Placing the free floor allows you to move your furnished room on the lot but the roof piece must be moved separately.
*Money tip on building your house.
The three story windows and doors are cheaper than the single height versions.
Windows are §30 each (3 styles) and the Door (1 style) is §50 compared to 90 for the cheapest single height door.
