If you

# cd /usr/src
# make buildworld
# make buildkernel
# make DESTDIR=/some/empty/dir installworld
# make DESTDIR=/some/empty/dir distribution
# make DESTDIR=/some/empty/dir installkernel

Then you'll see that

# du -d 1 /some/empty/dir

adds up to less than 200MB. This can be reduced further if you in your
make.conf remove NIS, LPR, GAMES and other stuff you won't need.

1GB should be enough for everything, but remember that log files may eat
up a lot of space.

And btw, doing the above you have a fully functional base system
installed into /some/empty/dir
