Thanks for the help. 3 seems to be the way to go and my worries were unfounded.

This is about what I thought was reasonable but I was worried about shear strength. Is 3 appropriate to secure the wall with occasional lateral force? This will be living space and there are children.

I considered it and ultimately decided on the Tapcons.

comment Can you skin over an existing roof deck that is breaking down?
Even if you can cover it safely and adhering to code... On any project like this, when I uncover something nasty I'm always a fan of a remove/replace approach. Easier to maintain/work-on in the long run.
