What space have you got to work with? And how big is the bed?

first of all thanks for answering. Its a queen size box spring and mattress. the room is 110 x 155
Are you talking in inches?
And would I think right that the roof slopes such that it's only 110 in the middle?

yeah in inches, and i think the ceiling height is the same all around

Have a look for "OSB" for putting a floor in, that should be your first job. You'll probably have to cut it in order to get it into the loft, but then how much of a hole do you have to get the bed through?

how sturdy is osb ? im assuming it also has to sanded and sealed?

A suggestion for flooring, I'd be laying some surface on top like carpet for example. It's not pretty, but cheaper than anything that would suit sanding and sealing.
(Although wooden floor-boards might be a lot cheaper where you live?)
