Question Porch Header Over Windows Question

Hi, on a 4-season, 13.5' x 14' (gable roof) I'm building, most of the walls are going to be windows. I was thinking of just having a post on the 2 outside corners, and a post in the middle of each wall. As a header, on top of the posts, I was just going to use a double 2x10 for the whole length of the walls, instead of a traditional stud pattern, since there's so many windows and a door on one wall as well. On top of this double 2x10, do I still need the traditional double plates, as if there were studs everywhere?

Thanks.
