looking to get a little work done on my house

i checked on this about a year or 2 ago, and wasnt able, financially, to move forward with the work.
we possibly are in a better position now to get some work done on our house

i figure i would love to throw the work towards someone who is local, given the economy right now, its tough to find work, so i would like to help someone local if possible.

we own a standard 2 story row house, with a 1 story laundry room off the back. i would like to add a roof deck onto that laundry room, and replace a window on the 2nd floor with a door to the deck, so there is a little bit of demo work as well.

it will be a simple wood deck and railing, and i have architectural drawings and some existing photos available.

besides this, i would also look into doing some minor electrical work around the house, or at least find out what the price would be to do the following:
1. add some electrical outlets in at least one room
2. add a nice street lamp type light outside my front door
3. replace a flood light in my backyard with a nicer fixture
4. perhaps add a light outside the deck with a switch right inside

if anyone is a contractor or has had work done similar to the deck i mentioned, would you mind passing along their info if you would recommend them?

thanks a lot for any recommendations!
