Code is certainly important, don’t want to blow yourself or the house up.
But if you’re outside the city and its a separate structure here’s a couple of thoughts.

Instead of sucking the fumes out with a bathroom exhaust fan (explosion proof blower required) consider PUSHING outside air into the space but with an exhaust port from the room to the exterior.
That would minimize the explosive vapor issue.
I’d make sure to turn the fan on before you start finishing to establish an air flow to keep any vapors from getting to the fan motor.
You could certainly use a bathroom vent fan in that case and I’ve seen some nice little axial flow fans at Northern Tools.
And I’m thinking dryer vents for the exhaust ports. You could put more than one in different locations (high and low). You can even put one from the blower on the INSIDE of the room to keep vapors away from the motor if its off.
And while I’m in creative mode a bathroom timer would let you set it and forget it for projects that you want to leave the fan on to try/cure.
