Header size question


Very nice
Your header span is not a worry
By having the jacking studs in the middle you are cutting the span distance in at least 1/2

Header size question


I actually wish I did the cripples a bit different on the window on the left, but oh well. I basically started on the right and went 16" oc.

You kind of took the hard road on that one by making one long header when two short ones would have done just as well..... you would have made the sides of the windows by the pipe the same way you did the outer sides of the windows... King studs all the way to the top plate, and jack studs from the floor to the bottoms of the headers.

No problem. This will work fine, and it looks great. Dang sure substantial!

I think in the original plan the windows were a bit wider and didn't allow for two studs to the right of the vent and I didn't want to move the stud closest to the corner. But, when I actually ordered the windows, I went an inch less just to be safe. Since I had it in my head I was going to do one long header I just went with it. Now I have to wait 2 months for the windows to come in.
