 So how about it? Why don't we start suggesting contract clauses and see how
 they hold up to our scrutiny (or paranoia). I certainly can use the help.

Hello Dennis,

These are essential, but not all exhaustive, clauses to be included in every 
contract:

1. A carefully worded arbitration clause (including fee collection), not just 
a boilerplate language borrowed from some other contract.
2. A carefully worded attorneys' fees clause
3. Specific schedule for periodic payments not contingent on any occurence
4. Detail exactly what your duties are
5. Detail exactly what you will NOT be obligated to do
6. Include a clause allowing you to file liens and to collect all costs 
incurred should payments are not made according to  (3)
7. As much as possible, make the owner a party to your contract 

By all means this is not an exhaustive list....other suggestions are 
certainly appropriate...
