I'm pretty picky when it comes to hiring a sitter for my 5-year-old son. After all, he's my baby, and I want to be sure he's in good hands. The same holds true for the other baby of the family: our precious cabin. When the cabin requires some TLC, I want to hire someone who is both skilled and trustworthy. This task can be harder than it sounds because even if I find a contractor who promises to turn out quality craftsmanship at a fair price, that doesn't mean the project will be completed in a timely manner.

Here are five tips to help ensure your projects are completed well, on budget and ... that they are completed - period.
