Hi everyone, and Happy Fathers Day to those Fathers out there. I am starting to built a shed and I am making a foundation of 2 X 6 pressure treated joist.
My question is what type/size of nail will I need to nail through the side of the hanger into the joist? I will be using 1 1/2 galvanized nails to nail the hanger onto the joist. Can I use the same size of nail?

Thanks,

You would use a 3"(10D) hot dipped galvanized nail. The nail would go through the joist into the ledger or rim joist.
