Ashton Kutcher Surprises His Mom By Remodeling Childhood Home
There are many ways to show mom you care. A kind word, a hug, a special card... But for Ashton Kutcher his sights were set higher. To thank his mom for all she has done he planned a big surprise for Mother's Day.
Kutcher is an investor in Houzz, a home-redesign website, and went to them for help with his idea. Kutcher and his stepdad, Mark, set out to remodel the basement of his mother's house. Ashton grew up in the charming home in Homestead, Iowa.
His mother, like him, loves that house and never wants to move. It's their family home. Ashton even helped build it more than 20 years ago. To show his mom how much she means to him, Ashton and his step-dad created her dream basement. With a growing family, they needed more room to enjoy each other's company.
"At the end of the day, it's my way of saying thank you to my mom," Kutcher said. "My mom has been the greatest influence in my life. My parents gave me everything. You know, they went to great sacrifices to give me the life that I have and anything that I can do to say thank you is the right thing to do. So, if I can make this space special for mom and make it a space that she wants to go spend time in, and just really make it beautiful for her, that'd be fulfilling something I've always wanted to do."
The gorgeous remodel took 27 days to complete and mom was thrilled with the final results. Ashton and his family can make many more memories in their family home!
