I have created my building to the point that i need it at and began working on the site.  How do I get the building oriented to the site the way I need it, without rotating the floor plans views or messing up elevation angles.  I am very new to Revit and currently training myself, I would appreciate the help in any way possible. Thanks.

Look at the Revit help file and tutorials for rotating a project and view to 'true north'.

The other option is to create the site in a serperate Revit file and link the building file into the site.  This is the method I use as it makes it easy to rotate the building to any angle.  Especially helpful early in the planning stages when you just want to play with where and how the building sits on the site.
