The calculator's results assume that your studs or joists are spaced on 16-inch centers, or 14 inches apart. Space nails along framing 7 inches apart along ceilings, 8 inches apart along walls. Space screws 12 inches apart along walls and ceilings. You'll need 5.3 pounds of nails per 1000 sq. ft. of wall or ceiling, and 2.9 pounds of screws for the same area.
