Re: What skill level needed?

I went with sleeping since it was the only option on the list I am intimately familiar with and both can be interupted by the kids, the dog, and the phone.

Re: What skill level needed?

Funny you should ask, I began the professional phase of my life as a computer programmer and ended up being a rocket scientist! That's all analysis and logic with lots of wrong answers and only a few correct ones. R&R is nothing like that! For me, anyway, computer skills are easy. Developing something that is visually pleasing and tastefully done requires an artistic eye and a light touch. These are the things that attract me to R&R as an alternative career, the things that I struggle with the most, and the things that ultimately bring the most satisfaction.

I'd go with wood working like Vikki suggested.
