I am 100% with you. I've learned a lot about home diy projects over the years. From grunt work like digging post holes, to design work like the deck, to basic carpentry, to finish carpentry, and this summer, even masonry. I get a lot of satisfaction out of being able to say "I did that, all by myself" even if it does have a little, uh, "character."
Having said that ... the theater has taught me I will NEVER mud/tape/sand drywall ever again. I will hang it. Maybe patch a few pieces here and there. Maybe do a small closet. But when it comes to whole rooms (or, as will be the case, my basement) I am going to hire someone to deal with it for me.
I have not laid the carpet in my room, but I am 99% sure I am going to have that done, too. From what I hear about the process, and how cheap it is to have it done, I am pretty sure it is going to get hired out, too.
