The ceiling height in my almost completed theater is 6' 11". For this reason I have decided on the Infocus IN76 projector which has a small offset. For the width of my screen (96") the offset is about 8.4". In other words, the top of my screen needs to be at least 8.4" below the center of the lens. Whatever additional distance the mount moves the projector down needs to be added to the 8.4". I would like to find a mount, whether commercially available or homemade, that is shallow. Preferably I would like to find a mounting solution that only takes up about 2". This puts my screen 10.4" from the ceiling.

Any recommendations?

The Chief RPA series mounts are about 2-5/8" when used in a flush-mount configuration.
