I'm installing a direct to stud 60" bathtub and have found the studs to be 60.5" apart. This leaves a noticeable .5" gap. What is the correct way to account for this? Should I push the tub up against one side and then extend all the studs on the other side out .5" so they are flush against the tub flange? Won't I then have to increase every stud on that wall by a matching .5" so the drywall lines up correctly?
