What you going to put in it (weight) & what are you using for flooring (thickness, material etc)

How did you attach the ledger board? How high off the ground is the floor framing? I can't say for sure but I think 16' is too far for a 2x8 to span so you'd need a beam at halfway for extra support. The carpenters should be along later with more/better advice for you.
