Bathroom Wiring Help

Please advise if the pictured wiring diagram would work. If not, let me know what needs to be done to fix.

Im trying to wire a light (over sink) and bath fan (over toilet) to a 1 gang double switch. (Top switch for Light, bottom switch for fan), and an outlet. The problem Im having is the power is coming into the room where the light over the sink is. I want to put 1 Junction box which would get hidden behind light once installed.

Please help.

Pat

Looks ok at first blush. Not sure you need the black tape on the white going to Fan; just make the black the hot one.

Ok, I was wrong.

You need a neutral for the fan. It will not work as drawn.

You are showing a switch loop from light to switch which in this case requires a thee conductor cable not a two conductor cable.

While not wrong he is using black for switched power to light. I am using the more conventional red for switched power to the light.

Wasn't sure which way was more conventional.

Please do it Ray's way, so future homeowners can easily understand what was done.

Please note my drawing assumes the power cable in is NOT from a GFCI breaker and the fan is not located in an area of the bathroom that requires GFCI protection.
