Approved BB submission
Got this one done recently.  The during picture was a but fuzzy since it was getting dark out and, for some reason, the lights weren't working. :)

Approved BB submission
Here is my submission for the Electricity - Sand - Replace Fan Switch with Timer BB.

To document the completion of the BB, I have provided the following:
  - a before picture with bathroom fan switch and the timer you will install
  - a picture during the install
  - a pic of the completed install

Note: the grey timer coverplate was not installed due to thickness of matching wooden coverplate and relative shortness of the screw to hold grey coverplate in place.  I decided to keep the matching coverplate.
