My HT was just finished last month.
And the construction page for those interested:

Alain: Most impressive! I'm sure we'd all like to know two things:
1) Did you do the design (visual and acoustical) yourself or use a pro consultant?
2) Directions to your place. I'll bring chips.
Big props to your father-in-law, too!
"... it is surely a morally ambiguous position to persuade non-technical people that to get a really good sound they have to buy £2000 preamps and so on, when both technical orthodoxy and common sense indicate that this is quite unnecessary. " -- Doug Self

It was a mix of both pros and ''amateurs''. For the acoustic, I have a friend acoustician that did help me planning the room, dimensions, speakers and sub placement, dealing with nodes and null, viewing distance, room treatments, broadband absorbers, Behringer BFD ''house-curve''. And with alot of help from the ETF5 software particularly, and alot other softwares also .... And I did also hire a contractor to do the ''basics'': electricity, framing, drywall (mudding, taping...), riser (''half'' the job) ... and the carpet was installed by a pro also.
But I did the rest alone with my father-in-law: stage, riser, furring strips, broadband absorbers, OC 703 and polybatting installation, GOM, framing and moulding, hush-box, projector installation, equipement installation and connections.
It was alot of fun!
And the best part is, even if the end-result is looking good (WAF seal of approval), the AQ and PQ were the priority, so the audio and video quality is also top-noch! And my wife is proud to show that room to her lady friends, and even to her interior designer!
Here's a list of the audio and video equipment in this room for those interested:
And BTW, I live up north in Quebec in the big white, at 6-7 hours by car up north of Montreal... But if you are up for the trip (I mean if you are the adventurious type), don't forget the chips and the beer!
