Indirect Point to point wireless link - Relay

Networking Matrix - Ars Technica OpenForum - arstechnica.com
I have 2 rural properties, one with an ADSL connection and one with no method of getting a phone line or fiber to it. They are approx 600m apart as the crow flies but no line of sight due to a huge field of 40ft trees in between them.

I can see a point on my property from both buildings and am looking to set up some sort of wireless relay at that point.

I can't find anything commercial that does what I'm looking for, tons of point to point links but no relay?

I was thinking Access point connected to router with external antenna on house A, WRT54G running DD-WRT at mid point with a Yagi/dish antenna connected to each antenna port, one pointed at house A and one at house But and then external antenna (yagi?) On house B, access point etc at that end. Use the DD-WRT option to share a wireless network, job done. There's a few hops in that, the speed may be screwed right down by totally different signals on each antenna of the midpoint router and there's a bit of set up etc.

Is there a better way to do this? Will the above even work properly? Only looking to share a 15mb ADSL and can live with it being a bit slower potentially.

No access to run cabling as I don't own all the land between the 2 properties. Via the midpoint it's about 900m which should be easily achievable for a wireless link?

I can't be the only person to have faced this issue? Would love some assistance if anyone can help! Thanks..
