If you have to build it outdoors than just accept it's gonna be outdoors. Three sides and the tallest steepest roof you can put on it.
Just because it's outdoors doesn't mean it can't be comfortable :)

You want 1 wall at around 45 degree, 8 foot wide and 10 foot high at the very least.
OK, I thought I would want a steep one as well, wasn't sure how much though. Thank you.

Take it from me (done so much traversing for endurance) doing it on straight walls has almost 0 effect for overhangs. Yet doing it on overhangs, even up/down climbing a 12 foot wall helps everything. Learning the basics of technique will only take you 6 month to a year. Wasting any more time on straight walls or drilling movement and training ''endurance'' rather than getting strong will wind you up in the same boat as most people. 5.11.
This is what I figured as well which is causing me to also consider going with 16' x 9' and putting the steep angle at the end, in 6mo to a year though I don't mind adjusting the room, the overall frame will be built first with the climbing part added on so I will be able to adjust in time.

Btw, are you doing all this just to get fit? coz their are cheaper and far more efficient ways. On top of that, you will get bored. Unless you strongly motivated to get better at climbing (or to not die for health reasons) then a bouldering wall may not be for you ;p.
I am getting fit for my own health / well-being; the climbing is something I have always wanted to do but in general wasn't going to be able to. Now that one supports the other I decided to give it a go and so far am loving it, despite the fact I've barely scratched the surface.
