I'm asking $10k to buy in, since with five friends, that would cover the cost of much of the land, and improvements to install the yurt or small cabin.

It would probably make sense to have a time share of the yurt as the legal structure. So each has a share of time at the yurt as my neighbor. We'd work out the details amoung ourselves. Socially though, we're friends and I like to have friends over when they're in the neighborhood, whether for quiet hacking on the porch, or more sociable activities.

The yurt/cabin site is on a logging road, in woods, about a quarter mile from the house, with a small hill in between, so it would be very private. We would have to work out water/power/sewer for the yurt site.
