I found some material from a spot that used to be a studio at one of my uncles warehouses, so i figured i would put it to use. The materal was a silky white fabric. It almost looks like it has a blueish tint. I had been thinking of putting together a screen for my very large workshop (about 75ft x 30 ft) but the price of materials was really holding me back. With this material the cost went down significantly. I ended up only spending about $80 at home depot on wood and some brackets.
I noticed that the silky white material was a little transluscent so I decided to use black out paper behind the fabric material in order to not lose any light. I already had the blackout paper so that was a plus. The result was actually a very crisp and bright picture. No complaints whatsoever.
The viewable screen size is 16' x 9' (16:9) aspect ratio. The size of the entire structure is 17' x 10' x 2"
Check out some of the pictures I took along the way and let me know what you think.
