I wouldn't bother getting the timber precut unless you have to. Would be far better to do it as you go.

To fix the timber to concrete floor I would get frame fixings that are about 3 times the thickness of the wood you are fixing through. All you need to do is drill through the wood then switch to a masonry bit and drill into the floor. You then hammer the fixings through the wood and into the floor.

Jobs a good un.
