I would build it on a hard floor.

In the bathroom if necessary. Just to be safe.

Generally.....
you don't need touch the computer at all times
try wooden floors
don't need gloves
socks are fine

BUT...
Don't touch the metal part of the cpu, not because you might short anything, but the oils on your skin can enter the micro valleys of the processor and prevent the thermal paste from adequately covering the cpu. Try to handle it by the edges.

Everything else will be fine such as the hard drive, power supply and even the graphics card. If you really want to, handle the ram by the heat spreaders.

just ground yourself to your PC case by holding on to your tower at all times to keep the static electricity discharged. and you'll be fine

FFS.

Just build your PC on a table. I Have built quite a few PC's in my day,all on a wooden table (My room has Shaggy carpet) and i didnt really care about socks/no socks/static electricity and not one of my parts have been damaged by static.

Just lay all of the parts on the table,put your motherboard risers in the case,slide the motherboard in and screw it in and just take it from there. As allendalle2008 said make sure not to touch your CPU ANYWHERE Except the edges,also make sure not to touch the gold fingers on your RAM.
