I just finished a 16 x 20 deck Sat. and used screws for the deck flooring. I used lag bolts to secure post the the deck framing. Screws on rails with the exception of 2" brads on the vertical lattice post.

But... I would never use screws on a shed or wall framing... why? Nails are sufficient for framing in those cases where you won't get excessive and directional weight thrown in the equation as on a deck. Especially one that sits 12' off the ground. Nails are "much" cheaper and much quicker to install.

I had two drills off of a split. One with a counter-sink bit and a 1/2" drill with a Phillips head set to drive with. It took a day and a half to set over 8 lbs. of 2 1/2" deck screws in the flooriing. I could have finished the floor with nails in about 2-3 hours by hand, much less a nailer (which I did use a Senco 18 guage to set the brads mentioned). But.. the screws will come up easier down the road if floor boards need to be replaced.

The shed is going to carry...

Place the slip nut onto overflow pipe and position the rubber gasket behind it.

Then screw on the PVC pipe fitting. The nice part about this Kohler Clearflo kit is the flexibility of the pipe fitting to move.

Steve does the same silicone procedure with the tub shoe and drain. All parts get a nice bead of silicone.

To see the detailed plumbing installation start watching the video at the 10:00 mark. There are a lot of great tips.
My favorite one is to AVOID getting the PVC primer on the inside of the tub.

Yep, that’s a pretty good tip since this Kohler Archer cost me about $800.
One of the biggest mistakes DIYers can make when installing this kind of tub is to not set it in mortar. So we’ll show you how to do that. You’ll be surprised how easy this can be…well, after watching Steve of...

We used 1/4crown staples on 3/8 over 3/4 but I've never stapled 1/2 in down though I have demoed some on a ceramic replacement that was, they didn't seem to hold that well but they skimped on the staples if I recall. I generally nail 1/2 in but the only time I use it much is over old strip wood floors that are rough. Years ago when hardwood was the normal finish floor, builders used 1/2 subfloor and would use 19/32 in kitchens and other soft tile areas. near the end of that time before they switched to 3/4 and carpet the better builders would nail and screw. The screws were only on the long seam running perpendicular to the joists and between them. That being said, for what your doing I'd screw the whole thing down with some 7/8 sq drive deck screws. Run your plywood parallel to what is already down make sure your seams do not fall on those already...
