הבית הדו-קומתי
הבניין הזה נבנה בשנת 1937 ונועד למגורי חברים. זהו בניין יצוק בטון ולכן שימש גם כבית ביטחון. על גגו נבנה מעקה המסתיר את הפיעלות עליו, ובתקופת המאבק נגד הבריטים שימש הגג המוסתר לאימוני נשק ולאימונים אחרים.
משנת 1950 ועד אמצע שנות ה-60 שימשה הקומה התחתונה כבית תינוקות והיום יש בה חנות בגדים. הקומה העליונה משמשת היום כמרכזיית תקשורת.

The two-story house
This building was built in 1937 and was intended for the residence of the kibbutz members. It is a concrete cast building and therefore also served as a security house. A railing was built on its roof to hide the activity on it, and during the struggle against the British the hidden roof was used for weapons training and other training.
From 1950 until the mid-60s, the lower floor was used as a baby house and today has a clothing store. The top floor is today used as a communications center.
