Due to their proximity, looks like the exhaust fan when operating may be drawing out any heat or cooling from the register. But if thats the hand you were dealt then it is what it is.

The middle of the fixture is exactly 7 feet from the subfloor. The bottom of the light bulb is at 78".

Unfortunately, it was. When the ceiling was open, I had to keep it in between the the joists in that area or else I wouldn't have access to the soffit to install the vent. I guess I could have done more framing between the joists above and placed it in the shower area and then GFi'd the entire circuit at the box...

Timer for exhaust fan was a good call. How are you doing you toilet flange? even with finished floor or on top of finished floor?

I was reading a while back about the above or even with the finished floor topic. From everything I read, the consensus was on top of the finished floor, so that is what I was going to do. Correct?

I ended up putting my flange on top of the concrete and with all the buttering of the tiles to get them level it was about 1/4" - 3/8" lower.

I used a thick wax ring and no problem.

It should have been a bit higher.

This is probably a never ending debate. I vote for #1, on top of finished floor. Thats the way I did mine.

Any tool recommendation for cutting the hole in the tile around the flange?

I see you used Ditra on the floor. Would you recommend using it on a slightly out of level concrete floor (with some high and low spots)?
