I’m continuing with a hook from the third and final book in the Passion Island trilogy, Triple Wedding.
Several people expressed interest in the idea of growing houses, so I’m skipping ahead to a passage with more information about it.
Before she (Teegan) could leave to meet Sterling, though, she had to get rid of a customer, Villiams, who’d insisted on a personal tour of her facilities before he made the down payment on his house. She led him along a narrow aisle between stacks of completed building blocks. Most of them were four feet long and one-and-a-half feet high, yet even she could pick them up with ease.
Villiams made a production of covering his mouth and nose with his sleeve to block the earthy smells of sawdust and fungi that dominated her warehouse, Vaguely insulted, she stopped at the end of the aisle and swept her arm toward the end of her warehouse. It was piled to the ceiling with building blocks behind a glasteel wall. Sterling, she was sure, wouldn’t be bothered by the mild smell of her warehouse. His elks undoubtedly smelled much worse.
“How long will it take to make my house’s blocks?” Villiams asked.
“After I make the molds, a week is usually enough, but unlike some of my competitors, I leave the molds an extra three days, in case the mycelium missed some spots. The extra time also provides superior bonding. Channels for wiring and plumbing are, of course, grown right into the blocks.”
Effing Feline here again. Why does the idea of growing house make my daydreams explode in size? Well, just imagine — a whole house made of scratching posts!
Triple Wedding – All three of Teegan Dayle’s sisters are getting married at the same time. On top of that, one sister just had a baby and two have gotten medals for bravery. To maintain her image as the most successful sister, Teegan simply must have a great date for the triple wedding — someone who’s loving, gorgeous, rich…and a good actor. Anyone, in other words, but the man Cupid has picked out for her.
