Ist go to your local permit place and ask their help. They will tell you stuff like 2 x 10 every 12 " etc. They will want to know stuff like what are the exsisting walls and can be quite helpfull. Most people fear the inspectors but I always look at them as Hey, I'm paying you to be here, I'm doing this my self, and you will help me do this right. Most actually enjoy helping. They can be a pain when you want to go below code or if the rest of your house is falling down, but I have also found they will be easy to get along with if you are up front. (Remember, they cant stop you and you dont want it to fall down)
