Setting up a chroot on a Jessie system to compile a program using sid

This is sort of a continuation of the thread started with the post 
"Recommendation for Virtual Machine and Instructions to set it up?" 


Aside: the programmer has been able to send me a binary which does work on my 
Jessie system, but, never-the-less, I plan to start experimenting with either 
a chroot or VM environment to run either sid or a recent Ubuntu release so 
that I can compile / build the binary myself.

The machine I want to do this on does not have any unallocated partitions / 
disk space.  There are two partitions, currently used for other purposes, that 
I could free up to use for the chroot (or, later, VM) by moving files around.

The Question:

One of the partitions I could free up is 16 GB, the other is 54 GB -- I'd 
rather free up and use the smaller one, but I'm wondering if that will be big
