I don't know if it is to late for this tip . Get some metal flashing and cut it into squares that are a bit bigger than you cement blocks and slide them in between the blocks and the wood . Makes a great termite barrier and it would not allow mice to stand on the blocks therefore no gnawing a hole in the floor , bend it slightly at a down angle and snakes can't crawl up them . We do that here in the south , especially homes that are built on pier and beam and you foundation is pier and beam . Just a tip ...... Can't wait to see the finished product , I know it is going to be a 5* loft .
