Installing a bath fan

    When I bought my house the upstairs bathroom had a bathfan, but it didn't work, no big deal I thought, just buy a new unit and replace the old one, easy peasy. Turns out it was a little more difficult than that. So the bathroom had a switch and a timer, one for the lights, and one for the fan, or so I thought. When I started working on the electrical and installing the new fan I discovered that the timer wasn't even wired up, and there were no wires running to the fan. It's almost as if the previous owners were going to install the fan, but then never did, which is wierd because the fan looks like it was used, there was dust inside on the fans, and it was properly vented to the outside, so I'm not really sure what the deal was. The timer was missing parts, so I ended up just installing a second switch and running wires for the fan. While working on the fan I discovered that all the other electrical in the bathroom was not up to code, so I went ahead and replaced all the wiring, I figured if I'm already working on electrical in here, may as well do it all right.
