attach bottom plate to exizting slab
 
I soon want to begin constuction of a small 8' x 10' storage/temp work shed on an existing 4" slab in my back yard. Problem is, whoever poured the slab (dont know what it was meant for) didnt put those little metal straps in it to wrap around and nail to the bottom plate. Now when I construct the wall frames, how to I attached them to the slab?

Thanks.

Tapcons, lead shield and lag bolt, Red Head anchors are your best bet. Stay away from nails.
