Wiring diagram / switch leg drop


Power to fan/ fan switch, splice to light/light switch, splice to gfci

Is this correct?

Electrically your connections are fine. Where are the connections being made? In the fan & fixture box or a separate junction box?

Make sure the size of the box (in cubic inches) is large enough for the number of conductors and devices.

Thanks for the reply

I don't have the fan in hand and the install document does not specify the volume, if it is sufficient I will use it, if not I will put the splices in a separate accessible junction box. The light is going in a plastic junction box, 20.5 cu in. No shower in the bath.

If you brought the supply to the switch boxes, it only require 1 cable to the fixture and fan.

It would also meet the 2011 NEC that requires a neutral at all switch boxes. Handy down the road if you wanted to install a timer on your fan.
