You are going to run floor joist? What will the building be used for? Weight on the floor? Building itself, how big is the flooring base? Floor joist at 16" center, you can span 12', using 2"x8" boards with no problem.



In my case, I used some 3/4" T&G OSB to cover the joist. They were glued down and nailed with ring shank nails. Now I'm coming back and installing 1bys at a 45 degree angle, nailing them down with ring shank nails to the floor joist.



Each board is sawed at a 45 degree angle on the running edges. Kind of ship lapping. The finish flooring will be 100+ year old pine quarter sawed T&G flooring that I picked up for free. ;D
