Need help on exterior wall repair


Here are some pics of the repairs I made to the area. Actually my neighbor, who's a builder, did most of the work for me. I'm very grateful to have good neighbors. He even lent me tools to do the repairs.

Luckily I didn't have to support the area as it wasn't load bearing. Cut out the rotted portions and trimmed the studs about half inch and slid PT 2x4s using PL 400 to secure them along with 2 1/2" galvanized deck screws. Replaced the cut out section of OSB with 3/8" plywood and covered it up with Typar house wrap. I know I shouldn't use house wrap right under stucco but I will be putting 2 layers of roofing felt when the weather gets better. I also stapled a layer of roofing felt in the meantime over the house wrap and covered it up with a tarp as you can see in the pics.

PS: Quite a bit of snow has fallen already as you can see in the last pic. Luckily I covered it up just in time.
