I took out about 12 in. of the stud. Some reassurance would be nice or tips. Thank you.
So, why did you cut the studs first and ask NOW if it's alright? Why would you do such a thing FIRST..... BEFORE...ASKING IF IT'S ALRIGHT????
What makes you think that you can just cut out studs and not risk having any problems. Do you have any common sense? Call your builder now and ask him. He's the only one that will know, not anyone here oin this forum. Better yet, call your building inspector and ask him if it's alright now that the studs are already cut.
Now, some will say that I'm a little harsh when it comes to posts like this. That's just to bad because I can't believe the lack of common sense and people not caring about cutting framing out FIRST before asking.
