This ^^^ is the part that concerns me.
If its a load bearing wall then an appropriately sized header needs to be installed.
Although not impossible you got to be pretty good to do it without disturbing the finish on the inside and certainly will have to open up the framing on the outside more than just cutting a hole in the wall.
Cutting a new hole in the wall (load bearing or not) will almost certainly require a permit and inspection.
What about the interior finish?
This isn't a job that takes days to complete if the guy's any good but five hours is beond unrealistic.
