KNOXVILLE, Tenn., April xx, 2024 — TRU Halls, one of 40 Clayton Home Building Group® home building facilities operating across the country, recently constructed its 50,000th home. Known as TRU Halls since 2015, the facility was first opened in 1970 by Clayton founder Jim Clayton.

Mike Duncan, regional vice president of the TRU® division and one of several Clayton leaders whose career has included time working at TRU Halls, says, “In December, TRU Halls built our 50,000th home, marking an incredible milestone in our journey to Open doors to a better life. Fifty thousand families have made dinner, welcomed family and friends, celebrated birthdays and made memories in their home from TRU Halls.”

TRU Halls is one of six Clayton facilities that constructs the TRU series of homes. Among the most affordable homes in America, TRU homes have made the dream of homeownership attainable for more than 100,000 families over the last 10 years. In addition, nearly all TRU homes are built to eBuilt® standards. The most energy-efficient home Clayton has ever built, eBuilt homeowners can save up to 50% on their annual power bills1, and the home is built to easily add a renewable solar energy system after purchase for even more savings.

Out of 162 current team members, 18 have worked at TRU Halls for at least twenty years, and one team member holds the record for 47 years at the facility. As Blake Ryman, TRU Halls plant manager, says, “Halls truly is a special place that so many have called home over the years.”
