suggestion for multifunction light/fan switch with a timer?

Hi guys,

I'll be renovating and rewiring my bathroom shortly and need some advice.

In my bathroom I will have my main vanity light on a single light switch, however, for my bathroom exhaust fan/night light combo, I would like a single switch that will allow me to seperately turn on the night light, and another switch to turn on and have a timer for the fan.

I have searched home depot and lowes but cannot locate such a switch. I typically see the generic dual rocker style switch, or just a timer switch, but nothing in a combination switch. I'm also having difficulties finding this type of switch online.

Any suggestions on where I can find one?

Thanks for your help!

I have never seen a one gang timer/single pole switch combo.
You may have to expand to a two gang box.

So your nightlight would be on the dimmer.......and the fan on the timer.

That would work.
