Charlie Mattingly doesn’t come off as the kind of person who lets the scope of a project get the best of him. It’s a valuable mindset to have when considering he recently embarked on a truly massive renovation project that is expected to take years to complete. Then there’s the fact that a four-man crew, led by Mattingly, will undertake the entire renovation. Raising the level of difficulty even further is the fact that the backbone of the renovation is relying on the efficiency-improving performanceof spray foam insulation, but the project will be the crew’s first time working with SPF. Any way you look at it, the renovation is an uphill climb, but Mattingly and his crew can’t afford not to have the constitution to see it through, particularly because they’re renovating Waverly Hills Sanatorium, one of the most haunted places in America.
Located southwest of Louisville, Kentucky, Waverly Hills has gone through quite a number of transformations over the years. Initially a hospital built to house the multitude of tuberculosis patients in the first half of the 20th century, the building was later converted to a nursing home in the 1960’s before being closed by the state for patientneglect. There were plans to convert the facility to a prison, and later to a religious retreat, but both plans fell through for financial reasons.
