Start with a used recumbent trike. Make a body from coropast (pull up the bigger political campaign signs after an election - same material). Make a floor frame from PVC pipe and build the body upward with coroplast. Coroplast sheets can be joined by lacing them together, Drill holes along the edge of the sheet and lace, or join them together with zip ties. A 250w rear electric hub motor wheel with SLA will help the rider get the rig moving.
There is a velomobile on OHPV.org that used this recipe successfully.
