LEGO Builder Finds Inspiration From Stewart's
Amsterdam, NY native Jeffrey Kozlowski was a LEGO lover as a kid, but in the last 2 years has gotten back into building Legos as an adult. Recently, Kozlowski has gone somewhat viral around New York State as a photo of his Lego replica of Stewart's started making the rounds.
He tells us:
While I loved Lego as a kid, I've been building again as an adult for about two years. These are all part of a larger project. I started building an airport and these are surrounding buildings.
Kozlowski adds that the Stewart's replica took him about a month to complete and comes decked out with a New York Lotto machine, coffee containers, ice cream and pizza. While Jeffrey doesn't have a favorite Stewart's location he does say " I do love their egg nog." Who doesn't?!
We can't wait to see the final project! Hopefully, once Jeffrey is finished with the airport we'll get a birdseye view. So does Kozlowski have a favorite LEGO creation so far? He sure does! It's his build of Holiday Inn Express. Take a look:
Am I the only one who had to do a double-take? I thought that was an actual Holiday Inn Express.
While we wait to see the final build, take a deeper look at Jeffrey Kozlowski's Stewart's Shop LEGO replica below:
