fixing the floor joists

Part 4: Assembling the floor frame

Place the two end joists on top of the runners (one joist each end) so that they are flush with the ends (of the runners), and overhanging each side by 12" (300mm).
Run a taut string-line from the end of one end-joist, to the end of the other end-joist.
Pack the string-line out from the joist ends with a nail.
Align the intermediate joists to within a nail's width of the string-line. Refer to the plans for the joist spacings.
Next, fix (nail) the joists in place and fix the two ripped down joists to the outside edge of the two end joists.
Then add three rows of blocking, one row along the middle and a row each side, 4" (100mm) in from the ends of the joists.

laying the floor sheets

Part 5: Laying and fixing the floor

Cut, lay and fix the plywood sheets to the floor frame. There will be two 48" x 96" (2400mm x 1200mm) full sheets and one 24" x 96" (2400mm x 600mm) half sheet.
Ensure all joins and edges are over blocking or joists.

finding the angles

Part 6: Getting the angles

Because of the sloping side-walls and the pitch of the roof, there will be a few varying angles to cope with.
Some of the angles may sound a bit daunting to figure out, but it is really quite easy once you know how.

Helpful reference: explains how to make a template by pre-drawing all the angles on a square panel and then, with an adjustable T-bevel, simply transferring the angles to the members that require angle-cutting.
