comment How do I troubleshoot an intermittent problem with a ceiling light/fan?
Do you have different switches on the wall for the fan and the light? When you say you searched for a loose connection, how did you do so? A loose connection can be really hard to spot if it's inside a wire nut (the plastic cap/screw thing). I'd strongly suspect the line from the switch to the light is loose inside that wire nut.

comment Term to describe two circuits run through one /3 cable
This sounds like what I'm looking for, I think. A double pole breaker is not used however. This is original wiring (1967). I don't know whether this was acceptable then but hopefully the terms will make it easier to search. Thanks!

It's not ever used as 220 - just two 110s that happen to be in the same sheath most of the way....

comment How do you build a “wet room” style bathroom floor?
I believe that Schluter's DITRA product is what's more commonly used on floors. DITRA works an uncoupling layer, allowing some movement of the subfloor without damaging the tile. I may be wrong though, I've only used KERDI on walls and haven't done floors.

comment Ceiling fan stops after a few seconds
Do you have a voltage sensor or multimeter you could use to see if power is being constantly supplied? Is there anything special about the switch being used to control the fan?
