Concrete Block

    I moved to Republic of Panama. Almost all houses and other buildings are constructed with concrete blocks such as these. We have had 631 earthquakes in 2013 and very little damage. I was looking for the material they use here to surface the inside and outside of these blocks. I assume it is quickcrete as well. They smooth out both sides here and then seal them with some kind paint primer and then paint them. It makes it difficult to do things like add electrical outlets or put in any extra plumbing after the fact. Prior planning is necessary but I love these houses and they are tight indeed.
