Most people will not share that info with you cause it is considered intellectual property. Not to mention they are usually tailored to that particular company and not a one or all type deal. My suggestion is talk to a contract lawyer about drawing one up for you.

Definitely talk to an attorney for any contract. There are certain nuances that they know about that can make a HUGE difference, like a properly worded "four corners clause."

The points you should hit are for whom and where; scope of work, including where you're stopping and what's not being designed (for example, I design structures, but if the poolhouse is part of a future phase and money's an issue, I'll write that the poolhouse will be footprint only, detailed design available as part of a future agreement); exclusions (no engineer's stamp, no permit or shop drawings, no project management); time schedule or when they can expect to see the design (VERY important); a kill fee clause, so if they cancel the contract after you've started work you can recoup your time; and cost and payment structure.
