CX and I are curious to know about the diagonal bracing let into the studs behind the shower wall. That looks like something seen on an exterior wall, but it appears to be drywall on the other side of those studs.
Well, actually, CX wasn't payin' no attention.

But them are some serious let-ins. I don't think that's sheetrock, Z, I think it's some of that "exterior" gypsum board. Lot of it used behind stucco in some parts of the country. But it's not uncommon to install let-ins in interior walls for bracing, either. I gotta say I ain't never used more than one board for such a brace, though, and nearly always a 1x4.

So, Al, 'splain us why you reckon you have them big ol' braces there.
