We just had our bathtub delivered, and upon fitting it in it's space I noticed that the studs on the valve/drain side are 16" OC starting at the wall. This puts a stud almost directly in the center of the tub, right where all the valves, shower head, diverters etc are supposed to go. Placing a 2x4 on end between studs obviously won't work here, so I'm just wondering what the workaround is?
I figure I have to notch out the stud that is in the way where the fixtures have to go and work around it. Any other options?
