Renovation door and window reframing

Recommended Posts

   Hi all, Tony here. I am looking for experienced builders/designers opinions on a builders recent reframing of openings in a house renovation I designed. I am very unhappy with what I see. This is a waterfront home in Connecticut, design wind speed of 110 mph with a large open plan and lots of  glass. Without influencing the replies does anyone see anything wrong with these openings and/or reframing/closure of existing openings?

Perhaps you might expand on what you're unhappy with...

The apparent absence of wall bracing in the original construction. Other than that, pretty standard stuff.

What is the outside of the wall currently. Are they installing plywood or some shear panel over the horizontal sheathing? If not, I would provide either let in bracing or diagonal blocking with cst strapping continuous plate to plate to establish some actual useful bracing. Before that, I would call my engineer.
