[Cob] Cob roofing

Has anyone successfully built a cob roof in the shape of a dome.
I know you would have to build some sort of temporary inner supports to lay
it in, "in a uniform manner" But once the roof dries the inner structure
could be removed.

The biggest concern would be rain but we can build a cob/adobe floor and
seal it with linseed oil and mineral spirits and polish it so it is a very
hard water resistant surface.
