Need to learn how to wire and install a basic wall-mounted light bulb socket in a dog house, absolute beginner. WILL PAY Answered
I have poured over article after article, and a few "wiring for dummies" type books, but I cannot figure out how to do a simple light socket job. I am not stupid, I can figure out most DIY stuff on my own, but EVERY single tutorial I look at does a poor job at explaining things for someone who doesn't already know how to do it. It feels like I would have to take a college course or read an entire wiring manual just to get the project-specific answers I need, but I am pretty sure its not that complicated. Wiring isn't brain surgery.
My project is this: I am trying to install a light bulb socket onto the wall of a dog house, using a wall-mounted socket like this...
http://www.amazon.com/Leviton-9875-Porcelain-Incandescent-Lampholder/dp/B00002N7IM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1395899759&sr=8-2&keywords=wall+mount+light+socket (called a "porcelain incandescent lampholder"?)
...and the power source will somehow be pluggable into an extension cord so I can just plug it into the nearby outside wall outlet. I have no problem understanding how to attach it to the wall or make a hole for the wires, but I just don't know what materials to use to install the socket, wire it for power, etc. So far the only thing I have been able to glean is that I need to strip and then attach a certain wire to the "hot spot" and the neutral wire to the "neutral spot", and maybe use armored wires? But how do I strip the metal casing, and how far do I strip it, and how do I attach the other end to a plug, etc, etc... I need to know every tool involved, every step, anytime you are moving something in the wiring, you need to be describing it, use adjectives and plenty of pictures.
I understand that this is not a quick question, so I will seriously PAY anyone who can really explain it to me (without me having to ask a billion questions because you made too many assumptions, absolute beginner people). Bad example would be : "...and then take your base and "word I don't understand" and attach it to your power source, and voila!". I would be willing to pay $10-15 to the person who is the most helpful (I could send it via paypal, or snail mail).
Thank you to whoever takes the time to answer.
