windows and walls. I am also reverse engineering a shed from youtube. With
16" center for walls, do I need 16" spacing on anchor bolts or will 32" do?
I realize that the spacing around the service door and garage door will be

Rule of thumb for a shed would be around 10" from each end of a wall and approx 48" O.C. otherwise. Make sure they do not line up with a stud location if you a setting anchor bolts in concrete before pouring floor.
