Butler publishs an Architectural and Engineering Manual which they give or
sell to Butler Dealers and/or Architects and Engineers. Find a local Butler
Builder (local phone book), the regional Butler Area Manager or Regional
Sales Manager (Kansas City, Mo; Galesburg, Il; Annville, Pa; Larinburg, NC;
Birminghan, AL; San Marcos, TX; Visalia, CA) and see if they will give you
one or sell you one. Depends on the size of your project and the likelyhood
of it being a Butler buidling. This manual contains a CD with 100's if not
1000's of details and/or sketches and drawings. They use to be in DXF
format but I haven't looked recently to see if they still are. They want
you to use their details and specify their product by name. The part they
won't give away is the capacity or design of those details.
