There would have to be an out side of the mold to hold it in place. Plus we would have to get on top of the mold to pour the concrete into it.

I'm not quite understanding you.  I get that we can't make the whole wall and put it up, but couldn't we make a wall in say, four sections?

In fact, we'll want to make a sectioned wall, because of temperature fluctuations and water freezing.  If we use four sections, held together with a light mortar (maybe even sloped ever so slightly outward?), we can avoid most water damage and make the walls inside the underground rooms.

So you mean some what of a composite of the two.  Giant slabs of concrete held together with mortar (basically big bricks).

No mortar, just the weight of the slabs themselves (these are thick!!).  Also, not having mortar will allow them to shift around a bit more.

No, moisture won't get in, especially if we use the insulation ideas presented in other areas of the forum.

As for putting them up: sheer willpower, and a lot of people.  I'm thinking 4'x4'x1' segments.  We can make our ceilings 8 feet high (which is actually fairly short), and our walls as long as we want.
