Maybe his room is too big for him and he's scared. As I understand, dogs are den animals and like to have a small, cozy (?dark) place to hang out. Have you tried to use a crate instead of letting him have the whole room? Our doodle had separation anxiety too when we first brought him home. His crying was so painful to listen to, but you have to ignore him and not go to him when he's crying or else he'll think he can cry everytime to get you to come back. You might also try to leave and re-enter really fast before he gets a chance to get worked up, then gradually extend the amount of time you're out of the room. It teaches the pup that you will be back.
