It is STILL going to be a garage. But I spend more time in the garage than I do in the house. I'm doing full insulation, wall board, cabinets, shelves, counters, new doors, heat/AC. But still a car shop.

Mark the spot on the floor where the wood anchor will be located. Drill holes through the wood with a bit the diameter of the anchor sleeve

House has vented brick veneer and good overhangs. There is no issue with moisture.

No additional vapor barrier required on the interior other than the foam.

His project is hopefully done by now, but I'm still working on mine.

I think I have all that I need to get the plans finished up and get the permit application underway. Hope to start building within the week.

You should still have a gap between the concrete and wood even above grade for moisture. This will also help to plumb the wall. Put building wrap on the walls first. This stops moisture but allows it to breathe. You need to have a gasket under the bottom plate (foam or 6mil plastic) or use pressure treat lumber as bottom plate to protect from moisture. You can do 16 or 24" centers, 18" centers will not work with the insulation or drywall. If it is a garage, then I would use moisture resistant drywall or exterior grade plywood to cover the studs, insulation and vapor retardant (6mil poly).
