    Quizzical Pursuit
    —The Architecture Puzzler

    Created by Dave Guadagni

    Solution to Last Week's Puzzler
    Architecture Puzzler #573

    Question

    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?

    Answer

    Adobe construction. "Gringo Blocks" are wood nailing anchors laid up with the wall where door and window jambs may require attachment.
     


     

    Okay, got it? Now try this week's Puzzler:
