new home theater

I'm building a house and want to construct a home theater in the basement. Right now the room is 17 by 20'5". My first question is: Is the shape OK for the sound? Next question, I am interested in purchasing a LCD projector, screen, full speaker system, etc... I have no idea where to go to buy the stuff, what to buy and if I should just save the trouble and let someone like Hifi house or Tweeter install the whole thing? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Check with your local A/V shops. They usually have services which will help you design your theatre. They can also help with installation and construction to integrate your theatre as part of your home's design. There are several places like this where I live.

Check out the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association(CETA)site for more info. They have "help for homeowners" and "find a pro" sections.

Go to AVSForum and find the forum specifically for Construction. They are extremely good for detail.
