Bolt size and installation

what would the bolt size be required for a 8x12 shed? should the bold be added to wet concrete, or drilled into cured concrete?
Asked by: la
for me its always been what am I anchoring to. if its just to anchor it for a solid attachment a 1/2" x 4" with a larger washer will work. from there you can 5/8" and 3/4" if need be but if you did you'd probably be using a heavier bracket
