Framing a standard 60" bathtub


I need to frame the valve end of a bathtub I just installed. It was framed, but I need to rearrange the studs on the valve end to the optimal locations. Whats the best spacing for the valve assy? is there a standard? Thanks!

In general, most plumbers I know want a minimum of 12". I typically use a standard 16" center though. You'll want to center the width on the tub drain centerline.
