Architecture Puzzler #573
If your contractor told you that he had to install "Gringo Blocks" at each opening, what type of construction would you be involved with? What would the blocks be made of?
Adobe construction. "Gringo Blocks" are wood nailing anchors laid up with the wall where door and window jambs may require attachment.

Hint: Probably not this kind of block.
