What detrmines whether or not to use nailing blocks for attachment of the crown moulding. Also what is the usual spacing of nails for the crown moulding? Thanks a lot.

Nailing blocks are used when the ceiling has no wood above the drywall to nail into---

on two walls you should have joists to nail onto ----the wall that parallels the joist may need nailing blocks.

i usually nail every stud and every joist. on wall where the joists are parrallel i put blocks above every stud. you could just rip pieces and put them full length.
