Acoustic Treatment Advice

Alright, I recently contacted Auralex for a free room analysis and they quoted me $600. I know that I can build my own acoustic panels, bass traps, and diffusors for half the price at most so I am going to go that route.

On the .pdf they sent me, they have a recommendation on how I shouid treat the room. I plan to follow the sketchup by making acoustic panels for the right wall and front wall, bass traps for the front corners, and diffusors for the back wall and ceiling. Also, In the sketchup they have (2) 1' x4' acoustic panels on both the ceiling and back wall. Would anyone recommend building these at that size or should I stick with what seems to be the norm, at 2' x'4? I have actually never read of anyone building a 1' x 4' panel, but I could be wrong as I am fairly new to this. I attached the .pdf for anyone to look at and the sketchup is on page 4.

Also, any recommendations on the curtains/drapes? Thanks!

Stick with the larger panels. Seems as though you could also use the following layout for ideas.
