We are putting in a passthrough on a weight bearing wall in a one story home with basement. The opening is 5'.6" wide and the headers are two 2x8's. There are two sets of jack studs and two king studs. Would like to make the opening a little wider and wondered if we can eliminate one set of jack studs on each side for the opening size. From what I've read thus far one set of jack studs and one king on each side should be enough but need as many opinions as possible as it's my wife that needs convincing We just had a builder here that didn't put any jack studs in it all at the beginning and we were fortunate that my wife was taking pictures of them building it and when she showed me I knew there was no support.Anyway, I feel I overbuilt it but she still wants the extra jack studs....Really need those opinions/discussions so we can move forward in the building process.
