Extending wireless to AP in order to extend network

All I have a design and configuration question in regards to setting up a building that has no wired connections to the network. I have an AP that I would like to setup in there, however, I cannot figure out how to connect that AP in the remote building with the AP in the building connected to the wired LAN. My antennas are setup, but I cannot figure out how to configure this connectivity, to basically extend the network to this building through the wireless connection. Sort of like a point to point connection or bridge extension of the network. We are using LWAPP with WiSM.

Any ideas?

Since you have an lwapp deployment, what you would need to do is setup a point to point bridge to connect the two buildings then you can setup the other LAP in the other building either in local or h-reap mode.
