This quote from amazon says there are plans...
The Book of Masonry Stoves represents the first comprehensive survey ever published of all the major types of masonry heating systems, ancient and modern. Detailed plans and building information are included in the book.
Some of the books above have links to book summaries here at permies otherwise just highlight and paste in the url to find at amazon or other sources.
...and welcome to permies, Skye! Feel free to begin a thread about your stove build.
