: : My builder roughed in the plumbing, but I don't see any hardware for an exhaust fan. Since it sounds like most building codes require a fan in a bathroom, what do I do to vent the bathroom. This room will only have a toilet and sink, no shower.

: As far as I know, a powder room, (w.c. & lav) is only required to have an exhaust fan if there isn't a window. Check your local code.

In my area we rough in the plumbing under slab but not the exhaust fan. It relates to a finishing expense that does not need to be included in the initial purchase of a house.
