Houzz TV: Ashton Kutcher overrasker sin mor med en ny drømmekælder

De fleste af os har et sted, vi virkelig kan kalde for hjem. For skuespilleren Ashton Kutcher, er dette sted i Homestead, Iowa (befolkningstal på 148). Det er her som teenager, han hjalp sin stedfar, Mark, med at bygge hjem, hvor han og hans familie boede, da han gik i high school.

Ashtons mor, Diane, og Mark bor stadig i hjemmet. Indtil for nylig, havde de en mørk arbejdskælder med ét vindue i soveværelset, ufærdigt lagerplads. Det var et vigtigste boligareal men fyldt med træningsudstyr, flere gamle hvilestole og John Wayne biografier. I mange år ville det være der hvor Ashton ville bo, når han var på besøg.

I get goosebumps wrting this comment. What can I say but a real son with no hang-ups, and quite honestly the relationship he has with his stepdad is overwhelmingly impressive. Good Job Ashton! My mum did not live to enjoy the fruits of my labor and I wish I can meet Ashton one of these days and convey how I feel about what she has done for her mum. This is in my opinion is one of the most inspiring stories ever. I can see why he was such a wonderful dad to Demi's children. A great young Man.Thank you for sharing

Okay, Ashton - I am a mom and I live in Urbandale, Iowa. I would love to come home to a surprise like this. My husband wants to hoard every piece of "thing" we have ever owned and it is all in our basement. lol How do I get you to come do my basement - I want to order one like your mom's. You did an awesome job. Just let me know when you are available - anytime works for me. :) Thanks, Nancy

What a wonderful Mother's Day story! So glad Ashton's mother and stepfather found each other, for the two of them and for the children. When Ashton called from L.A. where Diane was staying throughout the redo, Mark asked how Diane was doing first thing and sent his love to her last thing. The remodel was beautiful, but the love in that house is absolutely awesome. Every Houzz should have that. (Along with a couple of really comfortable chairs.)

Seeing celebrities, we often forget they're normal people just like everyone else. Seeing something like this shows the true character of a person. Ashton is IT ALL! While maintaining his celebrity status, he hasn't forgotten WHO he is and where he came from. I've always thought he was a great guy, now I KNOW he's a great guy! He could have built his Mom a mansion, but that's not who his parents are and that is so refreshing. His family is and has what most families aspire to be. They have love, trust and respect for who each are and that is evident in the respect Ashton has for his Mom, and especially his stepdad. Kudos to you Ashton. You've earned a whole new level of respect from this Mom!

Ashton I've always enjoyed your movies but now I like you even more as the special son that you are. I have three wonderful children and seeing how you treat your mother reminds me of them. You are so true it's the love that makes a house a home and not what is in it. However, making your mom's dream come true shows the pure love of a son and it will bring her great joy in her retirement years.

My best to all of you. L. Bliss, El Dorado Hills, CA.

Very cool. However, I think the writer is incorrect about the "brownie" uniform. Unless it's different in Ohio than it was in the 70's/80's in Oregon. I was a "Brownie" and our uniforms were BROWN. Hence the name Brownie. That uniform is a Blue Birds uniform. Which was red white & blue. I hated being a Brownie cuss of the uniforms. I'm prob the only one who knew this. I didn't read through all of the comments.

Your Mom's response was wonderful! She seems like an amazing woman who has raised 3 beautiful children. I was wondering though, if the whole family was there, where was Mila and your baby? You both are so down to earth and have stayed rooted to what is important - family. And if your Mom ever wants to do some landscaping, call me and I would happily help her dig up and plant. You are a great son!!!

What a great retreat you made and not only because it's stylish. All the thought, caring and effort/energy that went in show everywhere. I just can't think of anything as thoughtful as a show-pantry for a home canner par excellence! Those bunk beds for the kids?! What a treat is that! I bet there will be a steady flow of requests to go see Grandma and Grandpa in the future. And for you, Mark: Way to go! Those are some very classy recliners but my hat's off to you for the Winnowing of Wayne. That had to be difficult to do so obviously it was done from love.

I am so deeply touched by Ashton Kutcher and Houzz. This is by far the best Makeover program I have ever seen and when his mother started "Blubbering" I was doing the same right along with her. I can truly say I feel in my heart that Ashton has Not let Hollywood turn him away from his roots. I don't mean that insultingly towards Hollywood, but The warmth this man gives to people is just amazing. One little message to Mom...You have done the most incredible job of raising one of the most beautiful and kind people in this world! Thank You for Sharing ....P.S.

What really came to my mind foremost: how Ashton could easily have purchased a very expensive home for his Mom and Step Dad in a swanky neighbourhood as it is likely that Ashton has an income to afford such an expenditure. However, this charming and beautiful Family has their roots in their homeland and chose to stay and renovate the 'Family' home. I was so touched to see the humility that Ashton's Mom and Step Dad had and that is my take-away moment from this story. Your heritage and roots are so important and this family exemplifies this with their home.

Tina Daniels, you are right! Brownies -> Girl Scouts, while Blue Birds -> Camp Fire Girls. Two different organizations. I too was a Brownie, and the uniforms are and were indeed BROWN. Camp Fire was always red, white and blue.

Anyway, I love this transformation and how thoughtful and loving this gift was from Ashton to his mom (and step dad).

"You don't have to cry in every room"? Wrong, Ashton, we do and I did. I don't know any John Wayne references, but I'll quote When Harry Met Sally and say "I'll have what she's having". i.e. - Diane's house and her family are remarkable. Who wouldn't want that? This inspires me to tell my own story of how I'm single-handedly trying to make a rental flat a home. Almost forgot - love how you did the canning room!

As a former Iowa girl, I thoroughly enjoyed watching the reformation of Ashton's mother's basement. It reminded me so much of my sister's house in Iowa. The basement serves as many things in the Midwest, surviving tornadoes, etc. It was a lovely thing he did for his mother. I can spend hours on the Houzz website, it is so addictive!!! It now wants me to dive in our next project. Thank you Ashton and Houzz.

That was wonderful Ashton! Being originally from Iowa growing up near (Marengo) which is just a few miles from Homestead, I was especially interested in this. We all had canning rooms in our basements but not any nearly so nice as this one. What a great son to do this for your mom. She did a helluva job of raising you!

wonderful to see what a son can do for his parents..! well i never grew up with a mother and a father...but teared up when i saw this. i never had a home till the last few years...but where ever i went, what ever i did i always collected something or the other and said one day i would have a home for myself...li can imagine what it means to keep these things. i met my partner in 2011 and now we are in the process of making a home and when people ask me where i got this or that..i have a history to tell..so hats off to Aston for remembering what it is to collect and keep these things for your mother because its a life time of memories and dreams. wonderful Aston. Great Job. and Houzz you are the best. surprising its Mothers day today.

These recliner disagreements are so familiar to so many of us! They have in common the taxidermy disagreements - over taste, but also over the massive amount of room these items occupy in a family house. But the John Wayne thing was hysterically funny. I feel sorry for everyone concerned! However, the resulting designs came out very well, and overcame the 'bar room' feel of the original space. Next to tackle - that awful mania for sports memorabilia!

I was wiping some tears along with Diane. Ashton has an amazing family. You could feel the love he has for them throughout the videos. I didn't want them to end. He needs to renovate the upstairs so we can watch again! Maybe make it a TV series out of this type of thing. I love this website and have ordered a few things from it. Like Ashton said, you can type in any subject and get the most amazing ideas. My fiance and I are remodeling a cabin that we bought for $50,000 in a foreclosure. It has great bones and deserves to be restored. It will take a while, but will be a great place to live when I retire. Many of the ideas we are using there came from Houzz. Including some of the lighting I purchased from Houzz. Love love love your site!!! Thanks for a great Mother's Day series of videos to wake up to! Hats off to you Ashton if you are reading these comments. Great way to thank your Mom for all she has done for you and your family! Can I adopt you??? I need a canning room.

Just a son honoring his Mom - Well

The
greatest
tribute to a parent is the success of their child... it is not
measured in dollars it is measured by knowing your child has respect for
self & others, is healthy & happy, knows how to love &
receive love.

It
is watching your child grow up and want to come back home to visit.

Absolutely beautiful job. I love the canning display space, for two reasons; one it's just beautiful but most of all because Ashton understood and appreciated his Mom's passion and validated it. And, I wonder ..... how old is Catherine, the designer? Not yet 40, i am guessing? Why? Because it seems to me that "understanding the appeal and the need" for a recliner happens, Oh somewhere around age 40, when one is not yet ready to admit to getting older, just admit to "gee, finally I feel like an adult, and dang; it sure feels good to get comfortable after a long hard day of work". :P

I loved watching the video (wonderfully produced) and laughed out loud at the "tension" between Ashton and Mark (over the recliners) and Catherine and Mark (those recliners, again). And what goes better with seven recliners than all that John Wayne memorabilia! I loved everything about the re-do, including displaying those items that are meaningful to Diane and Mark (well, some of those items, Mark). I also loved the touches from Iowa like the collection of hawk feathers above the toilet. I can't say enough good things about the overall project from concept to design to construction to location....everything! Hats off to all involved!

No acting here-just the love of a son for his parents! Ashton-thank you for sharing and thank you HOUZZ for bringing this into our homes!

WOW.....My family still lives in Elkader Iowa......A historic little place with almost 1,300 people still living there. I think I am related to half actually, and it has the Turkey River running through it. Ahhhhh.The summers I spent there when I was a kid I can remember as if they were yesterday. So much so , I took my kids back there. My daughter was sooooo amazed that "taters" come from the ground and not your local food store....She refused to pick them outa the dirt, they were dirty! lol, kids.....As I visited my Aunt's place, the old smoke house was still there will ours names on it. Man o man took me way back. So much so, I started to cry. And yes, my daughter thought I was nuts....She was only 8. I was crying over such a simpler life, in a simpler place, where everyone knew one another. All the farms my kids never saw, all the cows, pigs and horses....She got to touch them all and finally understood what I was talking about.. A simpler way life. nothing she was used to living here in Chicago, that's a given. Aston, you did a great thing for your Mom. After all, it's about family. It's not about WHO you are, it's what you are. You never gave up on your roots. Your own home fams up bringing. that is what counts. you will now go back there to Iowa with your on child and share all those wonderful memories of YOUR IOWA! When it was sooooo simple to just live a life, rather to BE a life.... So happy to see your NEVER forgot where you came from what you have! You make this mother proud as well......God bless you!

Congratulations Diane! You must have been, and are, a wonderful mother to your children and that is inspiring.

It's refreshing to see that even though you are a huge star-you are still just a down-to-earth country boy at heart. I hope your family enjoys making many new memories down in your beautiful basement!

You are blessed to have such a loving family! They shaped you to be a caring and loving person as you and Mila will shape your child. I did laugh at the recliner poll.. I didn't realize you could poll on Houzz? Thank you for sharing your family moment. Sending you and your family all the best!

Loved this project! Kudos to the designer! I am amazed how much more efficiently the space is utilized. You did things like pocket doors that I would never have even thought possible for a basement that size. I have to say that Ashton's mom really deserves this!!! She obviously taught him old fashioned values that continue to keep him grounded despite his connections to Hollywood. What a blessing for her not just for the obvious which is the renovation, but more importantly, seeing the fruits of her labor (those years mothering) in her son. I'm sure she'd say her son is the real prize! Congratulations and wishing you many more years of joyful memories to make in your new space!!!

I've become a huge fan of houzz, after my cousin introduced me to the site at a Thanksgiving gathering several years ago. It's been my go-to-site as I took on a major remodel on my own. Just like Ashton, I have created idea files which I've used in the project, and so grateful for all the entries and photos.

I cried when Ashton's Mom came downstairs and wept from room to room as she took in the changes. What a wonderful gift you gave her and Mark, as well as all the future memories to come in these beautiful spaces. Well done Ashton, Catherine, and crew in sharing this video with us. Best Houzz presentation ever!

I love this! I love how the family was the story and how the home was an extension of the family not the other way around! If anyone has found the artist or title of the song please post it again.

Ashton what you done for you mother was such a loving and wonderful thing. You made me cry but that's a good thing, To see and hear just how much you love your mother was beautiful. I have two boy's of my own whom I raised by myself most of their growing years. So to see a son do this for his mother was heart warming. The basement it so totally beautiful and the way you brought it together was awesome. Thank you for sharing this with us. God Bless You and Your Family..

This mom cried along with Ashton's. I did not expect that. What made the difference (as opposed to watching any other home makeover) is the deep love and affection Ashton literally exudes for his sweet mom, step-dad, and entire family. Thanks for sharing your generous gesture with the rest of us, Ashton. And congratulations, houzz and design staff, on a beautiful, beautiful job. Well done!

I found houzz a couple of years ago, and enjoyed getting ideas as I was starting to build a house, so surprised to hear Ashton was also interested in this web site, and the great help he received from Catherine. loved watching this video. I will enjoy seeing him more than ever in his new endeavors in film after this.

Ashton--I have always loved you as an actor and you've always come across on TV and the big screen as such a good guy. Watching the video of your Mom's basement renovation was awesome! I just love it!!! How blessed you are to have such great parents and how blessed your parents are to have such a wonderful caring son. Congrats on your new baby and may God continue to bless you and your family.

I have always not had much respect for celebrities in the past based on bad behavior. BUT this gives me a much warmed heart knowing there are good people in tinzle town. I love what he has done for his mother. Tteating her like a queen Not another woman out there more deserving. I love this feeling the warm fuzzies!

no such thing as a girlie girl, a lot of unatural frivalous gender acts asigned to boys and girls. A real girl is a compliment: gracefully active and creative Still his mom is grown mature woman, and he could give a more specic charatersic . The house looks outdoorsey rustic for the wild enviro friendly country gal or guy. . . hopefuly they have more of a hook then tripe trigger words.

this made alot of people cry, it seemed genuine despite doubt that it was a stunt. She seems happy and it took some effort. He is blessed/worked hard to earn this great oprotunity to give back like this. Great concept to make it more modern, but like house they grew up in. It will help the connection between generations. How easy will it be to keep clean!
Silly ashton, he just got a daughter from kunis passively waitng while she made and birthed one. His sister resentlty delivered one or added to her family.

What a great gift to an amazing Mom and a step-dad who helped with pulling this off. The transformation is beautiful, and brought tears to my eyes as you lead your mom around to the different areas. It was a job well done and a gift a great gift of love and keeping family close. Bless you Ashton as you make trips with your family to your home and family. Love houzz!
