Any ideas on what else we could put in the frame (besides an actual window)?

The shutters have weepholes but they go in to the back of the shutter not out to the front.

This is what the house looks like. I feel like if we remove that false window the space above the garage will look unbalanced.

Would it be possible to remove the shutters/false window and apply 2 layers of Tyvek under it? The first would go all the way to the bottom edge of the garage. The second would go down and overlap a piece of flashing like kwikfishron mentioned yesterday. This assumes that there is just OSB behind the window feature and not a hole for a window. The first layer would protect the siding down to the garage side. The second would cover the water getting passed the shutters and dump it to the outside of the siding as shown.

I've no experience with this myself, so this is just an observation and suggestion looking at the situation.

We ended up hiring someone to complete the job and it is finally done and looks great. I will post a picture soon if I have time.
