Looks like that is what I'll be doing.

Thanks very much to both of you for your advice.

This is kind of cool as well. Might drive people crazy trying to figure out why lights and fan work the way they do...

Definitely will drive people crazy

Thanks again for everyone'se suggestions, especially hammerlane and jammin. Everything is hooked up now, working perfectly, and no holes were made in the wall. Awesome.
