A: When you use ‘by’, it shows the means and method which you accomplish the task.
When you don’t use ‘by’ it means that the second task was included or done along with the first one, but it is not necessarily the means to accomplish it. Or it is its main characterizing feature.

“Build the house by raising the walls”, this is what you need to do to accomplish building the house.
“Build the house raising the walls”, this is done as part of building the house, and it is included in the process.

You can say :
“Build the house painting the walls as you go”, as painting the walls could be part of (included in) the building process.
