Did you ever get a response to this question? I need help with this same issue.

You can use inSSIDer (http://www.metageek.net/products/inssider/) to analyze how much interference you get at any point due to other AP signals, but a creative pattern with three channels and five APs is possible to create. Take a look at this for the last figure, which will explain what I mean quickly: http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/wireless-network-routing-with-multiple-access-poin.html (no offense meant, just a good diagram to show the possible solution).

If you cannot come up with an adequate coverage pattern with non-overlap, a or n would allow you more than enough channels without overlap if that works with your existing network.
