  1. As long as you have enough shear wall 6"or 8" wall will do it, for the picture you may need steel it has no shear wall I also had seen other engineers using 2 Hardy steel walls on top of each other 12' high steel on the bottom and 8'high steel on top
  2. Do a plan check make sure you have closed rooms
  3. 2 layers of 5/8 drywall = 1 hr fire wall check on that most of the inspectors don't pay attention to the 1 or 2 layers 1 layers = 30 min
  4. You could open the wall check ballon through celling above
  5. Check layers make sure you have a closed room post the plan
  6. it looks like you stil have interior casing and sill checked uncheck it
  7. Under wall structure tab ballon through ceiling above it may fix it
