Any issues framing a wall with a window space, but not cutting and framing the window til later?

I'm planning on erecting a cabin here and I want to add a few windows. Problem is, I'm budget strapped and can only afford a window or two now. I would like to plan on framing a space in the walls for other windows, would this be a problem if i just left the OSB and vapor barrier on it? I'm not sure how structural the windows are.

Shouldn't be a problem. The framing is the structural strength. Not the window.

I frame all my windows as if there in a load bearing wall. I would do the same in this situation. Frame everything and dont cut the sheething until you have the window in hand.
