Some are involved but some not so much. Some are low quality old copies of drawings from the 1930, some are newer and easier to read. Might find something or get an idea from them.
Bleh. Looked through it and didn't see much. Seems like I ran across more basic, smaller plans years ago.
The book; How to grow vegetable's and fruits by the organic method, by Rodale has some simple storage methods.
If you give me individual veggies, I'll look them up.
The book's worth buying though.

We are building a true root cellar (dug into the bed rock and covered with earth), but you can get away with a partially sunken one as long as you can cover it with about 2 feet of soil.
If you are going to have a storm cellar installed, those make pretty good root cellars too as long as you get one with enough space for some shelves and the people who will be using it during a tornado event.

I'm 38. Living in nature and being self-sufficient has always been my dream. But I have a few worries. One of them has to do with the safety of living alone in the rural areas. Because I have heard stories of single women getting robbed (even though she was living very close to neighbours). And it seems it's not uncommon to hear about burglaries in the countryside, in both developed and developing countries. I'm worried.
