We did a renovation thing on the apartment by the Bay. Hired a recommended tile guy who turned out to be Cuban. Not his parents or relatives, born there. He sent Michel to lay the stone– and a lovely job too. Michel is from Chile. (Op. cit) The crew that moved the bearing wall so we could have a normal-sized shower was from Bulgaria. The cabinets and counters, were built by East Oakland Chinese and installed by a Thai. We bought the flooring from a Russian and it was put down by a pair of Mongolians. This is the small job non-unioin construction work force in the Bay Area in the early 21st century. How cool is that.
