comment Duct and fan requirements for stove hood
Thicker ducts may not be the answer here, since The exhaust fan can only push the air so far. While a thicker duct might increase this distance slightly, you may require an inline booster fan to actually move the air such a great distance. The manufacturers installation instructions should list the maximum duct length, which should not be exceed no matter how large the duct is.

comment How can I install a timer with three-way switches?
@Mike there should be two travelers on each switch. You'll have one common (typically a black screw), and two travelers (typically brass screws). Flipping the switch energizes either traveler 1, or traveler 2.

comment Are these walls prepared properly for tile?
When hiring people to do work in your home, never forget You are the boss. If you're not sure if what they're doing is right, don't hesitate to ask. Don't let work continue, until you are comfortable with what they are doing.

comment How can I run a coaxial cable into an existing single gang electrical outlet?
You said it was a good idea by posting it. If you wouldn't do it in your own home, please don't suggest others do it.

Is the 15A bathroom circuit for lighting, or does it feed receptacles as well?

NO. If the box is being used as a junction box; even with no device, you still cannot put cable in the box with line voltage wires.
