Yes, every other cross will work fine. That is plenty of support and half the expense. I'd set two above the door though.

Reinforced the edges and started covering the grid with cheap planks that will support my floor

insulation

A picture from today's progress. You can see the non-covered area (ran out of usable wood, will finish it tomorrow when I resupply), while the back side does already have part of the

insulation

glued in place and left to cure under weight.
I also trimmed the edge planks today to form a circle. All axe work! You can see the splinters laying all around.

Your work on this project is going well. I'm especially impressed by the use of hand tools. That says something about you.

You're getting there it is looking good. You will look back on this with pride in your accomplishment.

Thanks, Bob. We had some more progress today. Filled the remaining hole in the floor support and layed most of the insulation - only couple edge pieces left (those were skipped due to the circular shape of the floor of course), they'll be filled as we trim the edges and use leftovers for that.
I didn't take picture of today's finished work, as it was already getting dark when we ended. So just two quick pics from the process. Sorry for the continuous low quality of photos, still no time to solve out my internet connection here, so I resize pics to get them through the slow mobile modem. Once I'm back to fast connection, I'll upload the pics in full quality.

My wife was laying the insulation boards while I worked on the support layer.


My axe in action. Just getting rid of some bark remains on the plank edges. Love this antique axe, so thin and lightweight and great edge retention!

I hope it also helps them avoid some of my mistakes. Always willing to advice, if anyone interested asks me.
Anyway, today I drove all the needed OSB boards to the site and hope to finally make the floor over weekend.
