Alice Fischer
Bloques de cemento para tabicar.
Explanation:
squash; to squeeze or crush into a soft, flat mass, to press or squeeze tightly.( bric-a-block)
Bricks : ladrillos
Squash blocks or( bric-a-block) are considered building blocks. They are called squash bloks because they are made of cement and gravel and they have holes where you can pour cement and gravel. They take a lot of pressure not like regular bricks.They are also used to do foundations. Since this construction tecnique is not used in Spanish countries it is not an especific word for this . I hope the definition I gave you will help you ;-)
