Architects Sean and Sara Martin almost missed the opportunity to design the HGTV 2017 Urban Oasis in Fourth and Gill, the neighborhood where they live. “[HGTV Project Manager] Scott Branscom called and pretended to be a homeowner," Sara Martin said. "He said he had purchased a house in Fourth and Gill and wanted it renovated before moving in.”“We have a six- to 12-month backlog,” said Sean Martin, Sara's husband and partner in their business, Open Door Architecture.
Allison Easterday Alexander and Pee Jay Alexander accidentally discovered their home in Lakemoor Hills. “We came here looking for a different house and saw this one on the way,” Pee Jay Alexander said. “It was not architecturally appealing,” Allison Alexander said. “Everything was carpeted. It was a plain box with eight-foot ceilings. The outside was that old red brick. But it was a smart house. It made sense. The land, the lot, the size. It’s close to town.”“We love the yard,” says Pee Jay Alexander.
Unable to find the house they wanted, Leslie and Andy Henry decided to build their dream home. Ultimately, their search for a lot led them to Louisville. “When we drove down this road, I saw the horse farm, and it reminded me of where I grew up,” Leslie Henry said. “You’re in a tunnel of trees, and then it opens up into a horse pasture,” Andy Henry said. The couple's main goal was an open floor plan, Andy Henry said. “There are 25-30 people on my side of the family," Andy Henry said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
