    Hmmm, that's pretty small - and you are going to lose a good half a foot on each wall for studding and insulation (which you will definitely need) which will only leave you with a 6'x9' room. You will need a PJ with a pretty short throw and I would imagine that a 5' screen would just about work, without being too overpowering. Ask around some local builders is my advice - they tell you what can and can't be done. I assume that the building does at least have power?

    To save some space, you could "Clad" the outside of the building, you would then need much less insulation inside. In terms of the PJ and Screen, you will need a short throw PJ, something like the Z3. As this will be a dedicated room you could make a fixed screen to a size you feel confortable with. With a room of this size, probably best to stick to a 5.1 system.

    Good luck.
