Ditto my own room. Small and certainly with issues, but it has the convenience of being at home and gives me a sanctuary from my day job (I'm not a music professional).

Just to ask... I assume you must have taken some acoustic measurements of the room once it was finished. If so, are you willing/able to share a copy of the file? (whether in .mdat or another format). Or perhaps some other measurement plots? (waterfall and ETC especially).

The reason I’m asking isn’t about ‘proving’ how good your room is - I have no doubt that it’s great! It’s because measurements of well-built rooms like yours are super useful in helping other DIY’ers better understand how different designs/treatments work in practice. And we can only understand that through analysis of the measurement results.

For example, here’s a shot of my own room using the same scale as your measurement above. Looks great, but doesn’t say much about how it really sounds.
