how many nails per stud/plate joint?
when nailing studs to the sole or top plate for a wall BEFORE it is stood up, i.e. putting together the assembly on the floor, when shooting nails perpendicular through the sole/top plate and straight into the stud, is it necessary to use two nails or will one suffice?
when i framed my basement, i was nailing 2x4s right in their final setting, i.e. i wasn't assembling walls on the floors but 1 by 1, which didn't make perpendicular/straight into the stud kind of shots but more like toe nailing at an angle, i did use 2 nails for each joint. but i am now building a shed outside and it is different, since i will put each wall together before raising them.
