there is a hard way and an easy way. Hard way: build tiny bricks out of gray clay and put them in a pattern which it will not fall over. for the ends of the wall, attach them to city borders.

Asked in Home Electricity, Wood-Burning Stoves
What if all the bricks not in the wood burner stove?
The bricks are fire bricks that isolate the flame from the surrounding metal of the stove. Missing bricks will cause hot spots in the firebox. Over time the excessive heat will start to break down the metal and may eventually lead to a burn through. This will render your wood stove unusable as combustion air will be drawn in through the hole. This will lead to no control over the flame as there is now by using the control damper.
Did the pueblo Indians live in clay type buildings?
Pueblo people built their house with dirt, rock, and straw. They made bricks out of mud and straw mixed together. Pueblo people stacked these bricks to make walls and they filled the gaps with mud. They used wooden posts to support the roofs in each room. It was covered with layers of sticks, after then grasses, mud, and finally plaster. They often painted their houses with red, yellow, white, and black bands. Some pueblo people had big houses that had over 100 rooms in it. The buildings were made from clay bricks that were baked in the sun. These bricks are called adobe. Since the climate of the southwest was so dry, these bricks lasted for many years.

Where did the bricks come from whats the companies name to build the Indianapolis Speedway?
The Indianapolis Speedway's "Yard of Bricks" is the roughly 3' wide strip of bricks that marks the start/finish line at the track - 'yard' refers literally to it being a YARD wide. At least, it is only a yard wide today. Back in 1909, the track had originally been paved in 3.2 million bricks. Some 90% of these had been made by the Wabash Valley Clay Company of northern Indiana. Over the years, various repairs and resurfacing projects replaced layers of brick with asphalt, and today, only "The Yard" remains.
