You start by keeping the moisture away from the wall. Next you put the
barrier on the outside. Working from the inside is almost always a failure
or short term solution.
Frankly I don't think I would try and do what you are thinking for the
very reason you are concerned. I don't think you can reliably keep the mold
If you must, I suggest building the wall with foundation rated lumber
(the stuff you can build a whole foundation with) then make sure you have a
very good vapor barrier (heavy plastic) over that and under and finish wall.
