Is there a crawl space under the house? Or can you snake the wire up the wall into the rafter area and across the house to the back side?

comment All-around header dimensions for external wall
In your second picture you show only one stud on one side of each of the narrow window rough openings. You will want to change that to have two studs on each side of the rough opening. This provides the necessary backing for nailing in siding, drywall, interior casing and exterior casing adjacent to the sides of the window. One thickness of framing member is usually not enough for this.

comment Can you change the colour of frosted glass easily?
Painting any glass makes the painted side look like a coat of paint!! Where you get the looks is to paint the back side. If you use the paint on the smooth non etched side then the etching on the opposite side will appear dark because no light passes through from the far side. Then you can look into edge lighting the glass for interesting effects. Edge lighting in the modern day with LED strips can be cool. It can make etched glass take on colors. Of course a lot depends upon if the etching is just simple surface frosting or if the glass was etched to 3D effects.

I also vote for painting the back side of the glass. This can lead to some very elegant looks for either frosted or unfrosted glass.

comment Installing a wall vent when stud blocks the opening?
The problem with header hangers is that they transfer extra load to the existing single king studs that may or may not be over and above their designed to capabilities. This is why the conventional solution applies two jack studs to the base plate when there have been one or two studs cut out for a vent, door or window opening.
