Building a shed

I bought a house which has a 14ft long wheelchair ramp. I dont need the ramp so Im removing it. It has a nicely built heavy, shingled roof over it that Im going to use for a shed. Im thinking studs every 2 ft should be plenty as far as wall framing goes shouldnt it? Its 15ft long, 52inches wide. wide enough to fit my zero turn and all my lawn care equipment (weed wackers, pole saw, hedge trimmer etc)

Anything that is hand framed should be built 16" on center, IMO.

A lot depends on what type of siding you are using. Some of the thinner sidings must have the studs on 16" centers. I assume it currently has posts holding up the roof, is there any kind of foundation to keep the new walls stable thru freeze/thaw cycles?
