Any family that has ever taken a road trip has probably stopped at a Stuckey’s or two along the way. With their distinctive pitched aqua roofs and their famous pecan logs, these highway rest stops are a true piece of Americana. As a truck driver, Jennie Brooks has passed through a Stuckeys or two in her time. Now, she’s "stuck in Stuckey’s" for good.
Brooks bought an empty Stuckey’s outside Gallup, New Mexico, a few years ago. She has since shaped the place into a comfortable home with knotty pine walls, cozy carpeting and big plush couches. Brooks kept the kitchen where it was and added a custom built bar to replace the counter. She made her master bedroom in the space used as a souvenir store. The former ladies room was perfect for a new master bath.
This California homeowner completely transformed her contemporary home into an ornately styled Italian residence.
