My house was built in the sixties so there are no gfci circuits. My fuse panel is small and full. No unused fuses. I have a 15amp fuse that has a basement bedroom, rec room and bathroom all on one 15A fuse. I traced the wiring from the rec room which has 10 receptacles. The 10th receptacle has the voltage for the bathroom connected to it and the circuit ends in the bathroom. The bathroom has one switch and one vanity light 2 bulbs with a 120v receptacle in the bottom of the light thatís it nothing else electrical. I want to replace the vanity light and would have to add a receptacle in the wall. I would also like to add an exhaust fan.
Can I replace the 10th receptacle with a gfci to satisfy electrical code for bathroom? I would also like to take out the single switch box and put in 2 more switches (3 total) & run a 14-3 wire from the hot powering the bathroom switch so I can control a exhaust fan with light separately and still keep the vanity light on its original switch.
Can it be done to code this way? The fan/light combo will be partly over the shower so I know I need some kind of gfci + the 1 or 2 receptacles I put in the wall by the sink are needing gfci protection.
