I built a small pump house for my cabin a couple of years ago. pretty easy and didn't take long. This was wood but before the prices went crazy and probably only had $500 or so in it.

Bigger is better. Also go with a roof that is easy to remove if you have a submersible pump. Just had to replace mine last week and had to rip the roof off to do it.

I have a 10x8 arrow shed. When I bought it, it was like $300 or so. I put mine on a slab. It was a pain in the butt putting it together but other than that it was the best bang for my buck.

I put 14" wind turbine on my roof over the well. 3 screws to remove it. Pull well pipe thru through it. Works great.

This is what I used about 18 years ago. It is still holding up well. https://www.muellerinc.com/products/...uilding-6-x-9/

My well has the flexible poly pipe and is only about 60 feet. So pulling the well has not been an issue. But keep in mind you might have to take the roof off to pull your well.

I ha e sold a bunch of Krivoman Blinds with just door on it for well houses. $900 works well because it is a vented last forever unit that you can access via the door or just lift off for service.

One of those 8'x5'x7' wooden shipping crates would make a good well house.
Usually get them for around $125-150 bucks. All you need is a 10x6 utility trailer to haul it on. They also make excellent ground blind. I used one for 10 years before it got blown away in a storm. There was a place around Austin that sold them and McGill Welding in Lewisville had some last year.
