The Bathroom


Minimum required:


  • One GFCI protected outlet within 3' of the sink.
    • It must be adjacent to the sink, it can be on a wall beside the sink (but not across the room).


  • One wall switch controlled light.
    • Your choice of light and switch location.
  • Exhaust fan.
    • There may be a minimum size required, check with your local inspector.

In my example:

  • Nothing special in this one!

    • It's up to you.
