I own an old house and the tenants have asked me to install a new light fixture. All the tutorials I've found assume there was previously a full light fixture, but here there is simply a wire hanging down from the ceiling. The box looks ready to go for a switch. But what do I do with that wire - can I just strip it and separate one side from the other to get negative and positive?
