353-321 Brew (3)

 Day two of the sake cellar construction.

 The walls of the basement were 80% finished, but the first floor of the central part of the cellar was just about finished.

 However, the number of workers has more than doubled since yesterday, and I'm afraid that if all goes well, we'll be finished by the end of the day.

 I wonder how much effort they are putting into the sake brewing.

 As for Toya, he said, "I'll finish it today! He went to Tommy's place early in the morning.

 The purpose was to increase efficiency, but wouldn't the work be finished before the ...... cat car was ready?

 In fact, it would be more efficient to use Toya's physical strength here.

Construction is going well, isn't it? Is it usually like this?
You idiot! You're making it go a lot faster.

 When it comes to digging holes, you just need more people, but when it comes to the wall, it's not so simple.

 Normally, a lot of time is spent on building up the blocks and solidifying them.

 In this case, Yuki and I are handling it all with our magic, so the efficiency seems to be completely different.

I'm sure you'll agree that magic is amazing. ...... I'm always waiting for you, right?
I'd rather not be in that situation if I can help it,....... I'm not sure what to do.

 I smiled at Simon's reiterated invitation.
 I'm not sure I want to be in a situation where I can't be an adventurer.

I wouldn't mind working part-time. I don't mind if you work part-time, but you guys don't have a lot of money, do you?
Well, yes, for the moment.
If I do, it'll be in my spare time or during my pregnancy.
...... Do you want to keep talking about it?

 After that, I told him that I had no plans to marry Yuki or Natsuki, but he laughed and said, "Gahhaha! He just laughed and slapped me on the back.

 After that, he muttered, "Life is not as it seems. After that, he muttered, "Life is not as it seems.

 As I was working with Simon, I saw Toya coming through the gate of the house.

 She didn't have a catwheel, but instead she was carrying a magic bag in her hand to carry larger items.

 I thought I wouldn't make it in time, but could it be that the catwheel was already ready?

Toya, is it ready?
Yeah. Just one thing for now.

 As I said that, I pulled out my magic bag, which was not so different from the cat car I knew.

 Oh, the tires are different. I'm not sure what it is, but it's not a rubber tire.

Is this the catwheel you were talking about yesterday? It's supposed to be used for transporting earth and sand. ......

Yes. I think it's pretty useful.

Hmmm, ......, it sure looks easy, doesn't it?

 Simon nodded with interest as he inspected the cat cart.

Simon nodded curiously as he inspected the catwheel, "Wow, that's pretty cool. Yesterday, today.

 Yuki came up to him and complimented him, but Toya looked a little unhappy and shook his head.

No, not really. There are no pipes, so it's a lot of work.
...... Oh, by the way, the framework is made of bent pipes.

 If you remember what is used at construction sites, you will find that pipes are indeed used.

 If the pipe is produced as an industrial product, it can be made by simply bending it. ......Wow, is this steel plate being bent by hand? That's a lot of work!

It's a lot of work, that's for sure. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do this, but I'm sure I'll be able to do it.

"Light and strong material. ...... Oh, I remember that one. Trent's wood. It's strong and light.

You idiot! Who's going to buy that? --I mean, did you guys get ahold of any torrents?

Yeah, yeah, in the dungeon.

 I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's a good idea.

Do you know the price of Torrent? Do you know how much it costs? It's many times more expensive than the wood you bring in.

 Oh, that's right, it's expensive.

 If you're just using it for the framework, you probably don't need that much. ...... Speaking of which, the bow that Haruka uses is also based on a branch of Trent.

 The price of that is 80 gold coins.

 Even if it costs a lot of money to select a suitable place for the bow and to process it, the torrent material itself is not cheap.

 At the very least, it's unlikely that you'll be able to casually use a construction product made of torrent in the field.

You're right, it seems a bit impossible.
"Not a bit! If you use it, it will be stolen!
I see. By the way, Simon, would you like to buy some Trent wood?

 I nodded to Simon, who said in a dumbfounded manner, and took the opportunity to suggest it to him, but he snorted deeply.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't want it. But I can't. You can't buy it at ....... Or even if you buy it, you can't use it.

I'm not sure what you mean. Is it technical?

Don't be ridiculous! I'm the only one who can process Torrent. That's not true, we're a furniture workshop. Who's going to buy furniture made from Trent?

"Oh, I see. ......

 Even furniture made of fine wood is a luxury item that the aristocracy would buy.

 I'm not sure how much a piece of furniture made from even more expensive torrents would cost.

 If you think about the price of Haruka's bow, it would probably be enough to build a house.

 You can have our furniture made for you, but if you ask me if you need such high quality furniture, I think you don't need .......

 The furniture we use now is good enough.
 After all, it's all solid wood.
 There is no such thing as a plywood sheet.

If you want to sell it, you should go to Gantz. It can be used as a material for weapons.

But they don't sell a lot of those, do they?

No. In the first place, are there any adventurers in this town who would use such a high-class weapon? It's probably just you guys.

I know, right? We went through a lot of trouble to cut down the trees, and then Nao and Natsuki...

 Yeah, only at first.
 I had a hard time with the mimicry, but the felling itself wasn't too difficult.
 Well, it's a hard tree, so it was hard to cut down the branches.

 After we returned home, Toya sharpened the machetes that Natsuki and I had been using, but he said, "You might want to change to a better one.

 In fact, we felt the same way, so if we are going to continue to cut down trees, we should consider buying a new one.

Why don't we update our weapons? It can be used as a spear handle, you know? ...... Well, we usually don't use it because it's too wasteful.

Oh, so it's better than pseudo-ironwood?

It's good. You can make a mere wooden sword out of Torrent and it will be better than a normal iron sword.

Seriously? Wow, I think I'll have my wooden sword remade.

"What for? ......

 Toya's eyes widened in surprise, and I sighed.
 The first weapon I bought when I came here was a wooden sword.
 It's still in use and has never been discarded. --But in training.

 I don't see the point in changing it to such a vicious weapon.

 No, it would be more harmful if the training could cause serious injury.

So, most of them are in storage. ....... I thought we could sell them in this town.

"I'm sorry. I'm sorry, but our customer base is a bit lower than that. Do you want to go to another town to sell it, or talk to the deputy ......? Is that even possible?

 I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure I'll be able to do it.

I'm not sure what to do.

No, I have a few ideas. If you're not in need of money, can you hold on to it for a while without selling it?

That's fine with me. ......

 I've sold some of the wood a while back, so I've got some cash to spare.

"I'll take it up with the governor. "I'm going to talk to the governor, and depending on what he says, I might be able to buy it.

"Is that so? Then I'll do it.

 If it can't be sold here, there's no hope of selling it in Viscount Nenus' territory.

 I'm not sure what to do with it.

"Oh. But for now, I'll just use this brewery. If we can make good sake, it will make the deputy's tongue slippery.

That's right. Well then, let's work a little harder.

 So we resumed our work, and the catwheel, which had been forgotten in the course of the work, played an important role.

 At first, Toya showed it to the other workers, and later they used it as well, but it was very popular because it could carry a lot more earth and sand at once than the fern, and it was less tiring.

 The only drawback was that we had to put boards over steps and gaps that a walker could easily step over, but even taking that into account, it seems to have improved efficiency a lot.

 Mr. Simon said he would buy it if the price was right, but it took a lot of work to make it.

 Whether or not he can make money from the cat car will depend on Tommy's ingenuity in the future.
