Construction of a House with Brick Masonry Confined Cement (Spanish)

The construction of a brick building, commonly known as the building block, is widely used in our country. It is widely used, but there is a lack of evidence of the existence of some of the characteristics that make up one of the most used building systems. However, one of the great disadvantages is that it degrades the environment, since for its cooking it uses as fuel large amounts of firewood, thus contributing to deforestation and air pollution in our country.
