Until very recently, people have denigrated the idea of building with Jewish workers only for the very practical reason/excuse that Jews don't work as quickly as Arabs. Traditional building here is of the "brick by brick" or pouring cement which ends up taking forever.
|This building by conventional methods and Arab workers was begun 2 years ago.|
In recent years all sorts of prefabricated and other assemble/kit types of building methods have been tried to speed things up. Some neighbors had the walls poured as cement in situ. Cement walls cause awful insulation problems. Modern building materials have been tried, too. A few years ago, after the government began confiscating "caravans," mobile homes aka trailers as they were being transported to the yishuvim communities in Judea and Samaria, an in situ method was developed to assemble the walls etc. from factory-made building "sheets." Entire caravan neighborhoods were built like that.
