jjohnston: if you are thinking about bringing in a pro at some point later in the process (as you mentioned, to finish) then perhaps you should use the pro now to get the basics right. Then your work will be mostly in the finishing where you can take time and learn as you go.

and I have a ramset for nailing to floor. Is there a length I need to use, or will the below work for me? and also any suggestions on if I need the green powder loads?
Do you understand the difference between plan check and permit?
Do you understand the vacancy requirement's for permits, and their duration, or the process for extending them?

Each municipality has them.

Another opinion given by someone in another geographical area, and may be totally unrelated to your areas code requirements.

Had you submited your plan for plan check, you would have had the answer.

I don't know how long this guy has been in the trades, but I've never pushed a pin with another pin, and have always shot the pin through a steel plate, which prevents the pin from being buried in the sil.

If you always shoot 3 inch you never have to push the nail in. Some guns won't sink the nail all the way in if you don't do that. At the end of the video you will see that he moves his metal straight edge.

When you compress the barrel to the firing position, the nail head is tight to the load chamber.

What does him moving the square have to do with the performance of anchoring the sil?

Once again, had you submitted your plans for plan check, you would have had the correct answer for your area.

Generally, anchor points are recommended to be within 12" of the sil ends and every 4', or so.

If the sil end has a knot or the lumber is dry the greater the chance of it splitting occurs the closer to the end the pin is placed.
