I have read a lot of threads, but have not found the situation I am looking at. We want to install a free standing tub. We found one we like with a flat edge ( about 4 inches wide) the length of one side. All four sides are finished, and there is no access panel. How would a faucet be installed? would it need to be mounted to the tub and then the tub put in place?maybe have the pipes stick up 4 or 5 inches from the floor, tilt the tub and make the connection with flex hoses and then set the tub down? Any insight is appreciated.

sounds like it is just stupid, OR made for freestanding faucet (very common). if you go with freestanding faucet, watch out for crappy, slow fill rate.
Cutting in a access panel is a charming alternative

As stated you would need a freestanding tub filler. You would not attach to the tub. Use THIS style drain for the tub.
