Copy pasting completed huts with the tags on them is the fastest way to do
this. One more tip is that in josm select mode you can select a hut and
hold down ctrl+alt while you click and drag the mouse to resize the hut.
This lets you make a different sized one to copy and paste. With this
method you can cover an area with lots of huts very quickly.
