I was reading this thread:
http://www.permies.com/t/19421/cob/Pumice-Charcoal-Gabion-System-Insulates

My wife teaches hot yoga and I'm thinking this type of cob used in combination with larger stones like river rock might work really well in a hot yoga studio. The thermal mass would help regulate temperature spikes when the room fills with people and the charcoal would help regulate humidity spikes from people as well.

My question would be will the cobb hold up to the higher temps and would a humidity level of about 40%or higher be bad for the cobb? Having the cob fall apart wouldn't be acceptable in this application.

Initially it would be more of an application to the existing walls which are drywall so what would be the best way to apply it?
