First time here, so take it easy.

I'm looking to buy (probably) an Epson 3020 Projector with specs as follows:

Contrast: 40,000:1
Lumens: 2300
Resolution: 1920x1080
Aspect Ratio: 16:9
Technology: 3 LCD
Lens: 1.6x manual

I will be putting this in my garage (aka Man-Cave) and don't want to spend as much on the screen (or more) as I did the projector itself. During Football and Baseball games, I'd like to be able to open the garage door and let the light in without compromising the image too much. I'd like to look in to the option of a DIY screen vs. buying the "top-of-the-line" screens.

There is a sub screen forum under this one dedicated to DIY screen and you will find a lot more help if you post this there.
