Ashton Kutcher surprised his mom Diane before Mother’s Day by remodeling his childhood home in Homestead, Iowa. Kutcher and his stepdad Mark built the house when he was just 13 years old, and rebuilding it for his mom, he says, has been “a lifelong dream.” In a video he made with the online design site Houzz, in which he’s an investor, Kutcher documented the entire remodeling for his mom, who he called “the greatest influence in my life,” noting, “Anything I can do to say ‘thank you,’ is the right thing to do.” See the video below.

Kutcher expressed in the video, “I think everybody has a place in their life that they call home that sort of has that feeling of home” adding, “And no matter where you go in the world or what you see or what you do, when you think of the word ‘home,’ you’re drawn to a specific place in your mind.”

The actor also mentioned that he wanted the new and improved home to work with how his mom and stepdad “live now,” and that includes “living with grandkids running around.” Kutcher, now a dad to daughter Wyatt, said, “I don’t know that there’s anything I could ever do that really says thank you, but trying sure feels good.” Check out the video below of Kutcher’s remodeling of his mother’s home, and tell us what you think.
