Hello all, I've been learning a lot just reading through over the last month or so. I see that under NEC 2011 a neutral is required in switch boxes. Since I'm replacing some wiring in a basement bathroom I plan on adding a neutral to the switch box.

The wiring comes from the panel to a can light which will be switched. From there a plan on 14/2 to the switch box, 14/3 to the combination fan and light on separate switches, then back to the original box to switch that light. Should all of the neutral wires in that box be joined or should the light have it's neutral from the switch box?


Finally, since this circuit has not outlets is a GFCI required? I have 2 20 amp outlet circuits for the bathroom.


Thanks for your help,


Dan

@AllenJ - thanks, it is my plan to have both lights switched together. Your drawing is exactly right.

@TarheelTerp - I appreciate that I may not be required to add the neutral either by code or the AHJ, however I've come across enough times when I wished there was a neutral in the switch box that I'm willing to do it, especially since its so easy right now. I do plan on an occupancy sensor got the lights.
