Re: Notes

Well,  to take the middle road,  you can often find samples in books.  For example, Walker Parking (Tony Chrest et al.) wrote a book on parking structures that includes a variety of sample specs.  I personally have used them for reference, but I personally would not copy these or any other specs or notes without very careful review.  I did not necessarily agree with some of Tony's opinions; when we argued, we usually split about 50-50 on the outcome. 
Masterspec does have some very good specs but these also require careful review, to make sure they fit your project.  Even the specification for unbonded post-tensioning, which I personally think is outstanding, should be reviewed carefully.

Words cannot express the true joy and elation I feel knowing you have chosen the moral high ground and have the courage to let the world know. It is indeed humbling to be in the midst of such paragons of virtue.

Would anyone be willing to share or direct me to a web site where I can obtain general notes and specs for concrete, rebar, structural steel and lastly, siding.
