Hi my name is Michael Mendez, I am a senior at Vandegrift High School, and I am a Life Scout in Boy Scouts working on my eagle project. I am trying to build a passive solar veggie dehydrator (in the style of the large outhouse looking ones) for Community, First!, a program with Mobile Loaves and Fishes to get homeless people into homes in a self-sustained village, in order for this community to preserve their food. I was wondering if anyone had any plans/ drawings that I could go off of in order to build this. My email is m.d.mendez1996@gmail.com , thanks!

I've built a couple of these with great results.
Home Power Magazine #57 comes to mind: .pdf file.
This PDF contains material list and measured drawings. Also covers some technical information.


 
It will give me the powers of the gods. Not bad for a tiny ad:
