Sealevel,
That looks like a pretty nice design. I have only a few suggestions:
1. Your corner would be better for training if it wasn't at a 90 which allows stemming.
2. If you don't have an area to do pull-ups with a hang board, you might consider sacrificing some height to add a small horizontal roof. Just a little something where you can screw on a hang board.
3. 1' kick plates are a very wise choice.
4. Also you'll fine the best training angles at 10-20 degrees. So I agree on your choice. Only first time builders make the rookie mistake of going steep.
5. When you are finished up building, resist the urge to start throwing holds on. Get a gallon or two of bondo and seal up the cracks. Sand the edges, and paint the whole thing in earth tones. The kids will love it and it looks a lot cooler in the garage.
6. Oh yeah. Make sure you can get to the back of all points of the gym so you can service the T-Nuts if need be
