Rotten base shed/summer house

Hey guys, I moved into this house couple of years ago and put off a few things. It's been used to store bits of wood, bikes and other bits. I need in the summer to somehow sort the shed/summer house. The base has always worried me it sits on a slab base soaking up all the water. Today I went to get some wood and saw the bottom t and g partly off. Yep rotten. Put my fingers under to check the frame and as suspected it's rotten. Now I need some help how to try salvage it. I can't seem too find any screws inside that would have tried the frame together. I can only assume it's on outside under the t and g. If I can detach the floor frame I could brace it inside and try walking it onto the decking that sits next to it make a new base that sits on concrete blocks with a plastic barrier on top of blocks. There is some rot on the windows that I knew I'd have to replace this year and some wood on door that is badly split and coming apart.

Am I mad?

Cheers for advice
