I'm having trouble thinking up a name for my small business. I plan on starting up a home improvement
company, located in western north dakota. my skills in the field are near second to none. experianced from foundation to ridge cap...

Then tell it like it is...
The Home Improvement Pros, Inc. (Yes, you're going to have to incorporate your business. Any lawyer will give you dozens of reasons why.) The plural makes you sound like more than a 1-man band...at the same time the names positions you as a qualified tradesman.
Another option would be...
Professional Home Improvement, Inc.
Professional Remodeling, Inc.
"Home Improvement" sounds a bit more upscale, if those are the customers you're looking to attract.
You'll probably need a tagline to go with any name you choose, a few choice words that explain what you can do, something like...
From Basements to Rooftops
You don't want to get too cute or too clever with a name. You're best off with something descriptive or you might lose customers. Hope that helps.

I think you want to begin to build your brand. You have people who will testify to your expertise, and they will use your name. If you used something like "Golden Hills" or North Dakota Home Improvement, no will know it's you.
Build your brand...use your name.
