The Good Enough Construction, Corporation

Working at ground level and cutting pieces of wood for Don and Adam to install provides me with time to think (and sweep—but more about that later).

While asking whether a piece was cut correctly, Don responded, “It’s good enough.” That phrase, “it’s good enough,”—a phrase heard frequently around a construction site during the rough construction stages—struck a spark of inspiration.

Suppose there you were starting up a new construction company called the Good Enough Construction, Corporation, what could you use as a slogan? We started tossing around that idea and came up with the following list:

“If it works, it’s Good Enough!”

“Nobody’s perfect, but we’re Good Enough.”

“If it’s Good Enough, it can’t be wrong.”

“It’s not right, but it’s close.”

“It’s not perfect, but it’s not wrong.”

Wow, you're building a log home - that's awesome and quite an undertaking, from what I'm reading.

My husband uses, "Good enough for government work," quite often ;o)

There actually is a company called "Its good enough construction" company in Meriden, CT. The slogan is "Right or wrong, It's done"

Obviously they got it wrong. The used "Its" in the title and "It's" in the slogan.
