hola, a ver si alguien puede ayudarme. habla de una isla del pacífico paupérrima donde hay estas breeze-block huts, unas 'cabañas que sólo para la brisa'? ¿hay alguna otra palabra más específica?

gracias

    Hi.

    Perhaps I can help a bit.

    There are concrete block (bloques de hormigón) made of a mixture of cement and ash (breeze in English is ash).

    In the UK---breeze blocks. In USA----cinder blocks. They are strong, light, and insulating. I wish my little house was made of them.

    I can't find a term in Spanish. Perhaps----"bloques aislantes de hormigón".

    Is there a Spanish architect or builder out there?

    M.
