Built-In Bookcases

I'm currently working on a home design project that has me stumped! The living room of this adorable home is large with cathedral ceilings. Large picture windows flank one side of the room while a stone fireplace occupies one corner of the space. 

This layout leaves only one long wall to place the television, and a small entertainment center or television console might look lost in the vast space. 
My client loves to entertain and host football game watching parties, so it was important that the television serve as the primary focal point in the room.

I didn't want to distract from the fantastic fireplace by placing the flat screen TV above the mantel, so we are determining the cost and time effectiveness of building built-in bookcases from IKEA's Billy Bookcases line.

The tutorials I have found seem pretty easy such as this one here. The final look is gorgeous and would really add visual appeal to the large wall (as well as added storage space). I've found some images below that I'm going to use for inspiration. Wish me luck!
