That's what I get for skimming. :-D

I'm trusting this is just a "comment", and not your true attitude about constructing a dwelling your family is going to be sleeping in.

We often build two-story homes with multiple continuously connected rods of all-thread running all the way from down inside the foundation concrete, up through the top plates of the second floor.

How come you did not use anchor bolts, is my question? Instead of using ram set nails I would be drilling and epoxing the proper anchor bolts in and laying a sill plate down.

That's just because you have those pesky hurricanes down there! In the real world, I've never seen or heard of anything like that being done.

If drilling while green can you still use wedge anchors?

If you poured on Mon 5-13-13 it okay to put wedge quick bolts in now. I would use 1/2" bolts rated for treated wood & real hammer drill & bit not some lightweight pc. of junk. Code here will not allow you to powder activated nails to secure exterior walls. When we build garages we always use quick bolts instead of putting in anchors bolts. Pour the 1st day frame the 2nd day.
