Does anyone have an extension pub that has designs for a root cellar?

A root cellar should work near Nehalem if it is high enough so that it does not fill with ground water or flood water. Here is a link to a Michigan Extension Service publication about root cellars that may be helpful. The Farmers Almanac and Mother Earth News also have good information about the actual logistics of building root cellars.
