Take a look at these pictures. Making the light go on is only 20% of the job. Doing it safely and correctly is 80% of the job.  I hope you can see the defects, this is what you get when you hire a HANDYMAN. You think its 1/2 the price you end up with all the danger!

Stranded wire wrapped wrong direction

3' clearance not maintained in front of panel switchgear

 Always hire a professional licensed contractor!  And remember there is no such thing as an "licensed handyman" in the state of California.
