Help w/ Recessed/Motorized Screen

General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms - www.avsforum.com
Hey guys,

I'm purchasing a new home that I'll finally be able to make my long desired media/theater room a part of. I've already started trying to line things up so that I can get to work right away.

I plan on installing a television first for most TV shows and video games, and it may take a little while longer for the projector and screen to come in since I may want to take a break financially (purchasing a new home along with its requirements, a media room sound system, big screen 4K (doubt that I'm putting up the $ for an OLED), and comfy chairs is a killer financially). When I DO get the screen/projector, I plan on having it on the SAME wall as the TV. Thus, the only way that I believe that I can do it is to have a motorized screen be able to drop from the ceiling. That being said, I just had a few quick questions..

#1) Is something like this ok in terms of quality and performance for a motorized screen:

#2) Are there more types of these systems, and would you have any examples?

#3) I'm guessing you'd have to attache a decent beam of wood or other material to the wall above your screen somehow before attaching this device.

#4) Since the home is being built from the ground up, would you tell them to leave holes in the ceiling for a projector that'd eventually be installed, or would it be easy enough to let them make a full ceiling and then create the necessary space up there myself when it's time?

#4) What exactly is a "soffit"?

I truly appreciate any information that can be provided, even OUTSIDE of the few questions that I've asked.
