Full House Creator Bought the Full House House, So Now All He Has to Do Is Fill It

First, revival culture came for the property of your intellect, and now it's coming for your actual real-estate property. Full House creator Jeff Franklin has purchased the San Francisco pad made famous in those opening credits, after the Full House house went on the market in May. Franklin shelled out around $4 million of that syndication money for the house, and, as he told The Hollywood Reporter, he is a supremely satisfied homeowner. "The house came on the market and really, I just thought, I have to buy this house ... I'm so sentimental about the house. It's great to have the house in our Full House family and be able to preserve it for the fans," he said, adding, "Seriously, I love owning this house." Franklin is also making some necessary renovations to the digs; one of his first moves was to restore the door to its former red-painted glory, because some previous inhabitants had the nerve to paint that piece of TV history a shade of sea-foam green. That switch should help Franklin line up his next move, which is to reincorporate the Full House house into Fuller House, should the Netflix revival get a third season. "We would take advantage of the fact that I now own the house, and we could go up there and shoot some new footage and maybe bring the cast up and shoot with them up there," Franklin explained. And he has plans for between seasons, too, as he'd like to rent the property to fans because, "It's a shame to let it sit empty."
