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. :)

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.

Note: Looks like you did that with the circuit energized.  Gutsy!

Note: Since this is for "Replace" a switch with a timer, it doesn't fit here.  But it can go in the regular BB for "Install a Switch".  Looks like you submitted the toggle there but you could submit this there as well for credit when you do the Straw badge.
