This is a link directly to a plan page.  Scroll down a bit for some free detail drawings: Corbell Block, Window casings, energy efficient wall system, cedar bracket, and timber bracket.

A little further are some building notes: Cedar shingle installation, frost protected shallow foundations, building codes (Hey, Fisette again  ;D), and construction glossary.

At the very bottom is a building resources links section.
