It the valve has a single handle, rather than a hot and a cold, you'll need to make a single hole in the wall for the handle and one each for the tub spout and shower head. Install blocking within the framing to support the shower valve. This usually consists of a horizontal two-by-four cut to size and nailed to the studs on either side of the valve. It must be offset from the front wall by the distance specified in the faucet instructions for the valve handle to fit correctly once the wall is closed up and the framing covered. Use similar blocks to support the shower head and tub spout.
