we almost bought a cabin with a large peace of land. Since it was very expensive we considered buying it together with a friend. He has a 2 year old daughter and I would love to walk with her in the woods. And bake cookies in the cabin.
However, we could not agree upon arrangement of the sleeping quarters. Me being an architect (and thus being right ;) and this friend being conventional and very stubborn.
So now my fiancee and me are looking to buy a place just to ourselves. We are looking at some places next week.
And the friend with the daughter is very welcome to visit :)
