I'm sure your building codes are different than what we are all talking about.
I am leaning towards the framing over the windows was like that from the get go and the trim guys worked their magic and covered up the framing.
I have no doubt that's how it was from day one.... Doesn't mean it was correct... And if it were the upper floor of a two story house... Or a single story house it still wouldn't be code but it would probably never be an issue... But it's the lower floor of a two story house so it supports the load of the upper story along with the roof... It's sagged probably 1-1.5" which clearly is a sign it's not up to the load...
Yeah, Wisconsin doesn't get Earthquakes, Hurricanes or hopefully even Tornados... But... Wisconsin does get Snow Load and Wind.....
We're all looking at pictures on the internet, I'd suggest having a local professional have a look while you have things exposed...
