Glad you got your situation figured out. Looking at your pics I would have said you’re fine but would recommend an engineer if you need absolute assurance. I’m a general contractor that specializes in structural remodeling and have been thru architectural school. I can’t do the technical calculations that a structural engineer can do so an architect would be pointless probably. Also if you did have an engineer out they should give you a stamped report since you’re paying them that you can keep in your files if you were to sell the home later.
