Trap question

I'm currently pricing out my materials list for my studio construction. In each of my three rooms w/ 8' ceilings I have a door that is near a corner. I watched Ethan's videos about hanging traps on both walls when you cannot place them in the corner touching or almost touching both walls. My questions is this....

Do all the corners have to be 8' tall traps or can they be 4' tall and hung half way between the floor and cieling?

What size trap do you hang on the door? I was thinking of 4' since 703 comes in that sieze or I could make a 6' trap. What size do you have on the adjacent wall 8' or the same as the one hanging on the door?

I also have an iso that's rather small 7'x7'x8'. Would it be possible to fabricate 12" traps to save space in the corners or is it better to build full 2' wide traps and not space them in front of a corner but rather build 2 for each corner?

In a room this small is it better to do 8' or hang 4' traps halfwaqy between the floor and cieling?trap do you hang on the door? I was thinking of 4' since 703 comes in that sieze or I could make a 6' trap. What size do you have on the adjacent wall 8' or the same as the one hanging on the door?

No they don't, but the more you cover the better.
