correct framing for knee wall
Late following up... when nailing the top plate of the wall, I should nail through the top plate into the stud, correct ?? Meaning when the wall is standing, the nails in the top plate are pointing down, correct?? It's very difficult to nail the stud to the top plate, so that would be the wrong thing to do.
Also, I've seen some pictures where the studs for the knee wall are not directly lined up with the rafters so the top plate can be nailed to the rafter. I guess this is the norm ??
