Old windows/framing – need to pass inspection. I suspect this will not pass. How should I fix it? : HomeImprovement

I am going to be rewiring a few rooms in my house and will be getting permits on this work. As part of the inspection, they will inspect framing (I believe), insulation and then the electric.

Underneath the plaster I’m replacing i have found the following gem.https://imgur.com/v4tebMX

Is the 2×4 on the left side of the window kosher? If so, my thinking is to remove the 2×4’s on the right (and directly below the window). Insert a 4×4 and replace with the appropriate sized 2x4s. I’ve annotated this image…

Red = 2×4

Yellow = 4×4
