"Nothing gets done around here without Builders! You can hire more Builders to start multiple construction projects, or speed up their work by using green gems."
Each Builder's Hut comes with 1 Builder which allows you to build and upgrade the structures of your base. You obtain 2 Builder's Huts from the tutorial, with another 3 available for purchase using Gems.
It won't be long until your Builders are spending 1-2 days or more on upgrades, so additional workers will come in very handy!
Your first Builder's Hut is already constructed when you begin playing the game for the first time.
The second Builder's Hut costs 250 Gems and is required to be built during the tutorial. It will use half of your initial allotment of 500 Gems.
The third Builder's Hut costs 500 Gems. There are generally two ways to acquire the third Builder's Hut:
500 Gems can be purchased for US$4.99. See the Gems page for prices in other currencies.
Save up 500 Gems by completing Achievements and removing Obstacles. You don't need to spend any Gems during the tutorial (other than buying the 2nd Builder's Hut). Saving 500 Gems from Obstacles and Achievements is actually not difficult; in fact there is an Achievement called "Sweet Victory!" (3 stars) which rewards 450 Gems, almost enough to buy the third Builder's Hut by itself.
The fourth Builder's Hut costs 1,000 Gems (you must already own the third). Buying 1,000 Gems would cost US$9.99.
The fifth Builder's Hut costs 2,000 Gems (you must already own the fourth). It is possible to save up enough Gems to build all five Builder's Huts eventually, as there are a total of 6,312 Gems available via Achievements which means collecting all the Achievements will give you enough Gems. Also, there is an unlimited amount obtainable by clearing Obstacles such as plants and rocks (plants regrow every 8 hours). Alternatively you can buy the required amount for US$19.99.
You can put your Builder's Huts in the very corners of your village, in hopes of wasting opponents' time getting to them when attacking - which might mean the difference between a 2-star defeat instead of a 3-star one. However, the drawback of doing so is they will be easy pickings for a single Archer or Barbarian, and each building (regardless of purchase price or hit points) counts the same amount toward 50% destruction.
Builder's Huts can be used like Walls or other buildings to push back the no-spawn zone of Troops.
They can also be used to lead enemy troops a more desirable direction (for the defender). Because units with no preferred target simply attack the next closest building once they have destroyed their current target, you can strategically place Builder's Huts to ensure that these troops find a string of closer buildings leading away from high-value targets such as Mortars and Air Defenses.
Attackers should look for Builder's Huts or other buildings in corners and may combat this by placing one or two Barbarians or Archers at each building at the start of a battle.
Builder's Huts, along with Hidden Teslas and the Inferno Tower, are the only permanent structures smaller than 3x3 (all of which are 2x2).
Builder's Huts can be built without a free Builder.
The total cost of all five Builder's Huts is 3,750 Gems. Note that the second Builder's Hut is bought during the tutorial, so if you have already finished it, you would need an additional 3,500 Gems to buy the remaining three Huts.
They do not appear to have a door, or any form of resting comforts such as a bed, but there will be signs of sleeping from a builder's hut if one of your Builders are idle.
As soon as the three-minute raid timer begins counting down, all Builders will run towards the Town Hall even if it is the first building to be attacked. Even if the Town Hall is destroyed before the Builders reach it, they will still "enter" it.
On top of the hut, there is a hammer and saw which represents the Builders.
When moving a Builder's Hut whose Builder is currently unoccupied, there is a small black dot on the ground where the Builder's Hut originally was standing. As soon as you place the Hut in a new position, the Builder will spawn on the dot and run towards the Hut.
Although classified as a Resource Building, Goblins do not preferentially target the Builder's Hut, nor do they cause double damage when attacking it.
It has the lowest hitpoints of any building in the game.
There is an achievement for destroying a certain amount of Builder´s Huts, and it is called Union Buster.
