That site is WAY COOL! Thanks for that!

See if you can understand this: Dabbleboard - Online whiteboard for drawing & team collaboration - Interactive whiteboard software

Thank you Soooo much! It all makes sense now. I had some ideas about it but trial and error is a painful process when it comes to electrical. I really appreciate the help. I'm pretty good with non-electrical stuff in the remodel so I'll do my best to pay if forward when I see someone else needing help.

thank link doesn't work. if you want a working dabbleboard link for others to join there's a little "invite others" button on the right hand side. just click that and it should give you a proper link. you can register for free too and I think that keeps your board open.

Yes, this will work and the light and fan will not be GFI protected.

Is the fan or light over a shower?

Lights over tubs or showers typically do not have to be GFI protected.
Fans usually do.

This is a manufacturer requirement, not the NEC.

not above a shower, just very close to one. it's actually a light/fan combo, but for simplicity's sake I listed them as separate.

The GFCI should have two more terminals labeled "LOAD". If you power the fan / light off these they will also be protected from a shock hazard.
