Im building a shed 4.8 m x 3.6 m in area with a single pitch roof front to back

Im building it on top of a concrete slab

Is it a good idea to raise the joists off the slab

Im thinking of using joists rested on three rows of 100mm thick conc blocks ie span will be 1800 mm

What size joist would you go for
I m using 22 mm t&g flooring
Plus Im using insulation in floor

What type insulation and how should I fix it

The roof will be a single pitch roof spanning front to back
ie 3600 mm span
Im using 22mm t&g plus roof felt

What size timbers etc for roof

Do I need extra supports or purlings
if so where and what size

What would be the roof pitch front to back
