Just for my education, why is this an ungrounded circuit?

Read the last sentence in your 1st post. More specifically the last 3 words of your first post.

Ahh. Thanks. I wasn't the OP.

Interesting. So my choices pretty much lay with the saddle boxes and hope the existing electrical run will be sufficient. Extending the un-grounded circuit can only be fixed by running new wire through the house?

Thanks for all the information!

it also looks like you're using electrical tape to hold the box cover onto the blue box, if that's the case you should find a different way to fasten it on. I can't imagine the tape will hold for long that way

I have the switch isolated, so no power can flow through the box or to the ceiling fan. Electrical tape is because I relied on home depot assistance in the box and cover, but the cover plate didn't match up with the box. I'm glad I posted this project on here, have received a lot of good feedback.

Just ordered a saddle box from HDSupply and going to go that route and just patch the sheet rock where I moved the hole.
