    Will this arrangement work they way I have it shown? Where:
    -the 3-way switches control the light,
    -the single pole switch controls the fan,
    -the regular outlet is always hot
    -the load side of the GFCI is providing for all the above.

    All devices are outside except one of the 3-way switches.


    thanks

    If you are in GA, a neutral is required at the 3 way switch in the house.
    I prefer to not put my lights on the load side of gfci's.

    Is the fan rated for damp locations?

    Ummm. Yes. Thanks.
    And the GFCI will also be "WR"

    May take JB's advice and make both receptacles GFCIs. This way lights or fans do not need to grab pwer off the load side of the first GFCI
