I found this site while looking for a how-to guide for timber frame houses, and just had to share it. There are plans for virtually anything! They were probably done in the 70s or something because I see asbestos and asphalt recommended.

never deal with asbestos if you're not sure on how to deal with them especially when cleaning or waste disposal.. it shouldn't be thrown or disposed anywhere.

Interesting. I didn't have that much of a look around until I found this http://bioengr.ag.utk.edu/extension/ExtPubs/Plans/6002.pdf . It is a 1 bedroom house, 24x24 and I know where there is one built exactly to this specification. Down to the window sizes and door placements, arrangement of the bathroom, everything identical! (it was a house I was interested in buying).  That makes me wonder, how did these plans originate and how many homes were built using them?
 
You're not going crazy. You're going sane in a crazy word. Find comfort in this tiny ad:
