The folks at Charles & Hudson asked the Chicago couple behind the renovation blog House in Progress to pull together a guide to the local resources (vendors, contractors and retailers) you need for pulling off a successful home project. After six years of blogging their projects, they know what they are talking about...

It's a very complete guide, with everything from basic hardware to home inspectors, electricians, wood strippers, security systems, rotting pipes (yikes!) and the biggie: best general contractor.

A few of our favorites from their list:

Hardware Store - Clark Devon Hardware
Lumber - Lee Lumber
Tile - Tile Outlet
