Just use your name

+1. 

Nothing wrong with going with a catchy name, but I also like the classic approach and using the family name as well.

Says Mr Hammond River, Esq.   LOL

Haha.  Steeves' Brewing Co doesn't have much of a ring to it.  At least I kept the name local.  Sucks that the covered bridge in my logo has been torn down though.  :(

WongPong sounds asian/foreign though....

How racist are people out that way?

Yeah that why I'm not sure.  It's the city so it's pretty opened but we saw the Alberta statistic in the Trump forum Haha .  That's also Why I don't really want to use my full name for a company name.  My first name is french and last Vietnamese.  I have to some way trick white people into phoning me for quotes.  That's why I was trying to find words people can relate and be used too.

Maybe I worry too much.

If I were minister of transport, I would at least have them frame a superstructure and board it in.  Wouldn’t have to be structural.

I was hoping that they would do the same thing that they did on Darlings Island years ago........keep the covered bridge intact, but build a new one beside it. 

Sorry for the OT posts wong pong.  :(

that's ok  I've never seen a thread that stays on track ;)  There's an old covered bridge in my hometown museum.  Acadian museum but it's probably a replica.

Heritage Home Construction, or simply heritage homes. Kind of makes your company sound like a home builder though.
Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction, and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.

Are you incorporating, or just remaining as a sole proprietor?  You may want to consider Trademarks...and whether you're going to be infringing on anyone else's.

Any way, two in Toronto I've seen two that make me laugh uncontrollably:




It's good to be clever, but perhaps better to be memorable.

I'd say Rocky Home Renovations, but there's Rocky Mountain Home Builders...Maybe Rocky Home Landscaping and Renovations?
