Living room system, I'm quite pleased with this design and the results so far. No ripe tomatoes yet, but soon!

This is a pretty cool concept!
Being an expert on overflowing aquaponics aquariums in my living room... You want to make sure that the sump filter can handle all the water in the grow bed if the pump gets powered off at any point in the flood/drain cycle. I put a line on the sump that is the low cycle point in the sump when they system is completely full of water, and NEVER fill above that line.
I'd leave enough room between the top of the filter and the bottom of the 'house' so you can get your arm in there to clean the filter and also to be able to pull the sumps out.
I'd leave enough room between the top of the aquarium and the bottom of the grow beds for an automatic fish feeder. Personally, I use http://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1_____enUS442US442&gcx=w&...
If my experience is anything typical, there will come a time when you need to move the tank 2-3 feet to clean up the water under the tank so the carpet won't mold.
This would mean that the 'house' should be a free standing facade that wraps around the separate aquarium stand. This would grant you full access to all the plumbing, lights, etc. I've had it all fail on my in the last couple of years (let me tell you, smoke pouring out of your aquarium light that you can't get to because there is a growbed sitting on top gets exciting! How many people can say they've been asked 'Is your aquarium on fire?").
