Question Shed Floor

I am going to be building an 8x12 shed. I was wondering what I shoud do for the floor? Should I pour a concrete pad, frame it out with 2x4's or 2x6's and 3/4 plywood decking, or should I just put down some crushed stone? Any ideas or comments would be apprieciated, thanks

Actually, any of the three choices would work fine, they just have different characteristics: crushed shell would likely be cheapest and easiest to install, concrete would be most permanent but a lot of work, wooden would be somewhere in the middle. My personal choice is exterior plywood over 2x6 framing which is what I used on the shed at a previous residence. The ground was uneven and somewhat low-lying also so it was built on concrete piers.

I built a shed about a year ago and used plywood worked fine, much easier than concrete pad. and if you ever want to move it go with plywood. I didn't like where i built my shed so I moved it to another place.
