An extensive on how to draw buildings quickly in : openstreetmap.org/user/Ipswich. Maybe too quickly, if you judge by the comments to the post. Anyway, the article is full of and techniques to better use JOSM.

@Doudouosm I live in the same town as this mapper!

To be fair, they will "get away" with (literally!) cutting a few corners in the places they are mapping - small densely packed buildings where the bits which stick out are less than a metre area and its better to have *some* outline than bits missing.. (such a technique would not work as well in the rural areas nearby where the houses are more spread out and have more complex layouts)

@Doudouosm that's Extrude Tool looks awesome, will definitely try it out.

@Doudouosm I believe that L-Shaped buildings are faster drawn with plugin qeef.gitlab.io/mapathoner/usag but that's just tiny detail :)
