Making Construction Bricks in Uruguay

San Carlos is a community 19 kilometers north of Punta del Este. There are several places around San Carlos where construction bricks are made. The special mixture of brick mud is stirred with a tractor.

When the mud is ready, the bricks are formed and stacked to dry.

When the bricks are ready they arte stacked for firing. The bricks are stacked and covered with mud, leaving channels in the stack to build a fire, making the large stack of bricks one big oven.

When the bricks are ready they are taken off the stack and delivered to construction sites.
