Franklin, the executive producer of both Full House and the Netflix revival Fuller House, has purchased the iconic San Francisco home for around $4 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He tweeted today:
The Tanner family would be thrilled.
“I wanted the family to live in one of those classic Victorian homes,” Franklin told The Hollywood Reporter on choosing the Victorian home for the Tanner family nearly 30 years ago. “For some reason, that one jumped out at me. There were lots of candidates but that was the winner.”
Here he is proudly showing off his new (old) digs:
As we learned when the house went up for sale in May, it's actually super-fancy and looks nothing like the sitcom set on the inside. But that could change under Franklin's ownership. He already painted the previously-green door red, as it was on the show. “It will be a lot more fun for the fans because now the house will look like the Tanners really live there,” he said. “It’s a gift to the fans but it’s also fun for me to own it.”
He is even planning a slumber party with the entire cast on the show’s 30th anniversary next September. “I hope to bring the cast up to the house and have a big slumber party here so people can drive by and actually see the Tanner family living there for one whole day,” he said. “That would be pretty fun.”
You gotta hand it to this guy. He really loves Full House.
