Get 2 pressure treated 4x4s and some concrete paving stones (not the little ones, the ones that are about 1'x1').
-> The paving stones are going to be the "legs" of a platform you are going to build - so set them a little inside the outline of the shed floor, and stack as many as you need at each corner to get their tops level. If you want to dig down a bit and lay each of them in a few inches of gravel that would be nice, but not 100% necessary.
-> Lay 2 4x4's across the paving stones to create two parallel beams.
-> Use pressure treated 2x4 or 2x6s placed perpendicular to the beams - these are your floor joists. Space them about 12" - 16" on center. You can "toe nail" or screw the joists to the beams.
-> Lay some pressure treated plywood over the joists and nail/screw to the joists.
-> Place the floor of your shed on the plywood.
So this is exactly what I spent ALL day doing today. Thanks for the specifics. It turned out ok, other than the fact that I bought 4'x8' plywood and didn't account for the extra 4" on each end that the beams created. I just left overhang in the back - it still feels really sturdy. Shed should go up sometime next week.
