Oh man I hope not but I think we need to talk about window and door headers. With the void in the stud support created by those openings there needs to be a beam, a header, at the top of those openings to support whatever is above. I'm not sure with my screen but it looks like you spanned those openings with 2 flatways 2x4's, if so, that doesn't create the needed support. The header tables are in chapter 5, table R502.5(1)
https://codes.iccsafe.org/content/VRC2012/chapter-5-floors
It gives header sizes depending on building width and what is above. The header members they are calling out are standing up on edge. As the openings get wider also pay attention to the jack count.

There were about 3 headers that I rotated the wrong way and instead of them being on edge they were laying flat. Caught it and I'm going to rotate them.  They are double 2x4's with a 1/2 inch of plywood between.  I'm going to blame it on the heat - missing that I rotated them the wrong way.

Good deal, 3 is much better than all! We call that tropical brain bake. We stripped and reshingled our house last week, thought we did good to survive for old farts. I think going to the landfill is as bad as anything this time of year. My partner emailed last night that his roof leaked into his living room in yesterday evenings rainstorm... darn here we go again  d*
