    Default Drywall vs. Web Design

    Recently spent a week out in the Ozark Mountains helping my mother replace her kitchen - my hard work was her birthday present! Removed and replaced drywall, cabinets, countertops and even a part of the ceiling!

    I actually used to work for a company doing residential house painting (which also included drywall, mudding, wallpaper removal - all the really fun stuff).

    I've decided, as I review this week back to work doing the web design, I would much rather be coding then hanging drywall! <lol>

    Web design doesn't create bruises or busted knuckles (unless of course you throw a fit when the code won't work no matter what you do!) or leave a bunch of dust up your nose, and your clothes stay in much better condition! (Though I have been known to have a flat spot on my forehead from leaning it onto the desk when I'm ready to throw something!)

    I like the physical work of drywalling, mudding, and painting but definately enjoy exercising my brain much more - think I'm gettin' old!

    What kind of work have you done prior to what you do now? Which is better?
    Thank you,

    I prefer to do home construction than web design . However I like web design as well.

    Web design can be tedious, but then again, so can drywall. I just built a fence in my backyard and calculated that between my section and my neighbors (we split the labor by helping each other out) by the end of it we had set 44 posts, 160 some odd 2x4 stringers, 600+ 6 inch boards and a couple of thousand screws.

    I don't wish that on anyone, especially in the dead heat of Kansas summertime.

    Hey, a fellow Kansan! Thanks for the reply!

    I think I'd rather do drywall than set posts! lol

    That's pretty cool, so you know how nice Wichita really is. And, so is Kansas City, by the way. The art museum up there is second to none.

    I've heard that before...the art museum. My daughter was pissed as her high school wasn't allowed to go as it was just inside the Missouri border and the school bus insurance wouldn't cover them. I need to go check that out - thanks for the recommendation!

    Yeah, it's the Nelson-Atkins and is free to go in, unless there's a special exhibit or something going on. But, even if you don't see the special exhibits, the free portion will blow you away. Start in the North west corner of the large building and then go counter clockwise - NW, SW, SE, NE, etc. to go from the oldest to the latest in time. You'll spend all day there, by the way.
