    Not to much profit left on there. I guess if you have a bunch of left over fixtures and wire it might work out. Get your foot in the door and upsell upsell upsell.

    6 uplights? what home can you do the front of with 6? but then, at 725, this guy is going after the low end. 10-15 buck powder coated aluminum fixtures off ebay( and houston gets the salt air from the coast) and looks to be a 100 buck cheap trans off ebay( although the one pictured looks like a multi tap, so probably beats the big box intermatics).

    I agree this is an upsell deal where you get there and try to do closer to 12-14 fixtures and push the price up to 1500 bucks or so. I can see how a guy could make money doing that in a day on a 300 watt trans and cheap fixtures. not even a remotely good system, but installed quickly, profitable.

    but you'd have to do 2 of those 725 deals a day to pay help, eat and live anywhere, even a fairly cheap cost of living town as Houston.

    Without question its an effort in the direction of getting some work. Hmmmmmmmm I wonder if it worked? My guess is questionable, but you never know.
