Brick houses may evoke the aura of medieval style buildings and may be more hurricane resistant, but already struggling home builders state that to build brick homes takes twice as long as to build wooden houses.

As stated in the egmat solution here we cannot take the case of ellipses. okay fine.

But in case of parallelism it is taught that we can omit the common words. Here to build is a common word. Why can't it be used only once??

Brick houses may evoke the aura of medieval style buildings and may be more hurricane resistant, but already struggling home builders state that to build brick homes takes twice as long as wooden houses. Why is this sentence not correct??

please someone resolve my doubt. My exam is in a week.

here's my 2 cents

U have to understand the " 1 out , 2 in " logic here
U have to be very clear in using it ...

I prefer to use "2 in"
so use to build ...twice
