Proper Re-framing Attic Walls


Just curious of the proper way to frame an attic wall. If the wall runs parallel to the rafters but is placed in the middle of the rafter span, what is the right way to attach it to the ceiling. Do you run blocking in between the rafters or the collar ties? Separately, if your going to be moving an existing wall is it ok to nail it through existing hardwood floors (set it on top of the hardwoods) or should the hardwoods be removed and the bottom plate nailed directly to the subfloor.

Do you run blocking in between the rafters--------- correct. Or add another collar tie and then block, 24"o.c. Over the hardwood.
Be safe, Gary
