I think the experienced ones recommend You to start Your own framework.
As for now, there is nothing to say about Your current theme, it has no pages, structure or layout.
Look through these and learn.

All the best,
Kris

You can use whatever framework You want, If Your item looks and feels premium and is coded with the latest standards.

Concentrate first on creating a nice design and then on site template that will be accepted here. Only then start thinking about how to integrate you theme into wordpress.

To create a first wp theme i recommned to use a ready solutions like theme Options Framework and WPAlchemy metaboxes.
