Bathroom remodel snafu
 
Bathroom is gutted, am installing new fixtures for tub/shower, toilet, and sink. Also installing new drywall ( green board ) , ceramic tile for shower surround and floor.
The problem right now is getting the depth inside the wall for the water valve. The instructions provided are useless ( who writes that stuff ? ).
I had screwed the valve to 2x4 but that was to much, then tried 1x4 which looked like it would work. put up the drywall piece I cut for it and now it is too shallow .
the only thing that comes to my mind is building up with 1/2 in. material behind the valve which will be difficult but not impossible. Any sugestions would be very welcome.

You're having trouble mounting the shower valve at the right distance back from the finished wall?

Why not just mount your 1x4 a little closer to the finished wall? Not as far back between the studs.

Am I misunderstanding the question?

The 1x4 doesn't need to be all the way back in the stud-space.

Use a 2x4 or 2x6 (even better) place on the "flat" between the studs. Also, DON'T USE GREEN BOARD for the walls and tile. Use cement board.
