Switch leg to light/ceiling fan with two 14/2 cables

by Uncle Woody   Last Updated September 23, 2018 13:21 PM

I'm installing a ceiling fan with a light kit and want to control the fan and light separatly from two separate switches in the same two-gang box via a switch leg (power comes in through the fan). It seems that I need 4 wires for this - one hot, two load, and one neutral. Would it be a code violation to use two 14/2 cables to accomplish this task? I could buy 14/2/2, but it's not widely available and is pricey. Am I over thinking this, or is there an easier way to do it?

Many thanks in advance for the help.
