I know that the "laundry room" has to have a dedicated circuit. Would that include a half bath with a GFCI?

My Dryer is electric, so it has a dedicated 220 line. My washer has a 20 amp circuit. Can I come off that with a GFCI for a half bath that is in the same room?

Yes. The laundry room is on the list of rooms that need a dedicated circuit (other than the dryer circuit). And yes, a half bath is also included on that list.

They must be separate dedicated circuits, of course.

Laundry room gets a circuit.

Half bath gets a circuit. (a circuit that serves *only* bathroom *receps* can serve more than one bathroom, though that's not a good idea if women are around :)

Even though they are the same room, there has to be separate circuits? So, I can't come off the 20 AMP washer outlet with a GFCI 3 feet away for the sink?

I basically converted a small full bath into a laundry/bath by removing the old tub and putting the washer/dryer in place of the tub. The bath only had 14/2 running to it originally. I ran 14/2 to the lights and wanted to run one 12/2 to the washer and sink (GFCI)...
