Huntington Woods-native Kristen Bell returned to the metro Detroit area to surprise her big sister with a major home renovation.

Voice of Anna in the Disney hit "Frozen" teamed up with online home design and remodeling Houzz for a spectacular makeover of her sister Sara's basement.

"Getting the chance to spoil her and create a space that functions better for her family would be such an epic surprise," Bell said in the Houzz web series, which aired last week.

Bell said her sister, brother-in-law Tom, and their four kids have been living in the 1,026 sq foot home for the past 12 years, but there were “busting out of the windows of this house.”

With the help of Ann Arbor-based Melissa Kennedy of Meadowlark Design+Build, the remodeling team transformed the basement into a chic place for the couple to kick-back and relax and added a bedroom for their 11-year-old daughter.
