What type of nails we should use? to complete storage shed..
 
We finished floor and sub floor and now

Please tell us nails we should use on wall frame as well as on roll roofing.
I have been told 16d common for wall framing ...correct me if am wrong...

Two of the four walls will have dimensional lumber 2x4 at 16" center
and other two will have pressure treated 2x6 again 16" center ..so advice accordingly.

also what type of nails to be used when we put t1-11?

Welcome to the forum.

16d on the framing (I‘d use galvanized), 8d galvanized on the siding (stainless steel if you’re near the coast).

Why would you use PT studs on the two walls???

Reason why I would use pt studs on two walls because I already have some left from previous job....so it will save some money...

Don't waste your time. Pt wood is not meant to be used for studs. They will shrink.....twist and ruin everything. You will be wasting money trying to fix the wall. Do it right the first time. Buy the right 2x4's.

so what is better choice 16d galvanized spiral or common ?

also how about 16d sinker vinyl coated ? for pressure treated wood?

for non treated wood what is better 16d vinyl coated sinker or hot dipped galvanized?

Anyone of them will work. The only place you should be using 16's is when attaching the bottom and top plates to the studs. Not when toe nailing in the sides of the studs.
The downward forse will not let the nails pull out.

You don't need the spiral, commons are fine.

Galvanized is all we frame with on the Coast but that doesn't mean you have to. There a little harder to bang in (and pull out) then the vinyls.

So galvanized 16d common for treated studs but what about non treated studs? what is the best choice non treated?

as I told before I have some 2x6 treated lumber.. laying around extra from previous job so two small walls in our 15x8 shed am going to use those pt lumber and for long walls am going to use 2x4 non treated lumber which I have to buy yet...

The same thing.

There is no single nail to use for wall framing. Different connections use different nails. For example, if you're toe nailing a plate, you use 16d common nail. If you're face nailing a double top plate to the top plate you use 10d common (or you end up with 1/2" of nail sticking out, which is a hazard). However, knowing what type of nail to use in a particular connection is only half the information you need. You need to know how many nails to use, and in some cases, how far apart they should be. All that information is called a fastening (or nailing) schedule, and it is dictated by code. You can find this schedule in the IBC and IRC. However, it's a dry table (no pictures), and thus beginner DIYers can find it difficult to understand. Fortunately, someone has gone through the trouble of illustrating most of the items in the schedule: Scot Simpson in his book Complete Book of Framing. I highly recommend you get yourself a copy.

Try some of these, though you might need to drill pilot holes first.
(that's a 12" scale rule below). :)
