Location? If you are located near a pour n' measure place that is by far the easiest.

Fun with math:
a buggy hauls a yard of concrete. 3'x3'x3' = 27 CUBIC feet
at 4" deep (1/3 of a foot) that comes out to .3333CF/SF
27 x .3333 = 8.99 squared <-- your new shed floor
9'x9' x 4"(.333') = 27CF or 12'x6'9"

If you want a BIG shed use two buggies.

What is "shingle and cement"? The two are not compatible.
