Regardless I would think that if your floor was lined with plastic then other that some kind of footing you could just build your cob wall without worry about moisture from the ground. Off subject but thought I'd throw it in anyway, The heat and humidity makes it a bit rough to build here during the day and last night I went out and worked in the moon light. It was great. The gnats that are so annoying were not there and because I used only the moon light I did not attract a lot of other insects. I will definitely add full moon nights to my work schedule. Of course somethings need full sunlight to do correctly. Pat Mauk, Ga "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic" Arther C Clarke
