Hello everybody! I am beginning the planning stage of building a home theater in my second floor walk in attic. Im handy with the saw and tools. But Im not to familiar with framing. I've get everything but the ceiling figured out. The room is 10x21. Im thinking i need to do 2x6 16" oc for the ceiling joists. My question is can i rest them on top of the top plate and toenail it to the top plate, or do i have to use hangars. There is infinite resources online on how to frame but not a lot on ceilings. There will be no storage or anything on top, the only thing it will hold is 5/8 drywall. Thanks for your time!
