I decided on a 4’ spacing and since a grid wasn't nearby, I created an arbitrary reference line (dashed line) to dimension from; the reference line was then dimensioned back to the closest grid. The fastest way to do this is to create a single instance with a tag and copy it over every 4’. Then you can use the extend multiple to align all dimensions to the face of stud.
On site, anyone can lay this out and connect the dots, but as always, I would like some feedback on this approach, especially from someone with more framing experience than myself.
The families can be downloaded from here (2013).
Edit: I recreated the family in 2013 and added a few new types as shown. I also added a double horizontal control to allow for flipping the direction when using the Arrow - Line type:
