I've posted this in a couple of places already, but have been prompted to post in the room construction area too.
Apologies for the iPhone 3G pictures and the Picasa gallery. If asked to, I'll post the pictures here individually.
The room is almost finished, and I'll get a proper photographer friend to take a few pics. I have some better qulaity photos too, from before the drywall was put up. I just have to find where my toddler hid the camera! It's definitely a budget build, but it as a first HT project, I'm quite blown away by what we managed to achieve.

It's a Transformer because it switches from gym to home theatre in about 20 minutes, when I'm alone - or 5 minutes with 2 helpers.
