there is no way to "encrypt" the database schema. That said, you can hide the data and the objects from the database administrator by using explicit deny and not giving him permissions as owner. However, using deny complicates your database design while offering no real advantages beyond what auditing access and controlling System Administrator role membership will provide. Consider the fact that the majority of the most sensitive data in the world resides on mainframe databases without encryption.
If you really must implement encryption, even though threat modeling will show how useless it is, at least do it with SQL Server 2005. With the .NET integration of this upcoming version, it will help you minimize the performance hit.
