Rotten wood at the lower right corner of window. It looks like the two vertical studs at left, under the window, are bored through.

Termites used the galvanized pipe at left of photo as a highway to the second floor. Stud to the right of the pipe is trashed. Count one stud to the left of the stud at right side of photo -- that stud is also trashed at exterior wall at rear of bedroom 4.
