How to Build a Floor in Sons of the Forest

The first thing you’ll want to do is gather logs by cutting down trees. With a log in hand, hold the primary action button (LMB/RT by default) to put the log down where the dotted lines are shown.

Then, you’ll connect logs to form a square by using the arrows to guide your placement.

How to Make Planks

After you have a square of logs to make the frame of the floor, you’ll want to split logs into planks. To do this, stand at one end of the log while holding your axe and angle your screen until red dotted lines are shown.

Use the primary action button twice and you’ll have some planks. You can carry up to four at a time. From here, you’ll take them to your floor’s base and use the arrows once again to guide your placement. It will take five planks to complete each log frame to create a floor.
