Jeff Franklin reveals that he plans to have the interiors of the house renovated to match what is displayed on his sitcom.
The original "Full House" residence has been sold, and the buyer is none other than Jeff Franklin himself. The San Francisco home, which housed The Tanners on the sitcom, was put on the market for $4.15 million and the series creator purchased the property for around $4 million.
The Italianate Victorian house was built in 1883 and designed by Charles Lewis Hinkel. The door was repainted green and the interiors were redesigned by the previous owner, but Franklin has changed the door back to red. He also plans to renovate the interiors so that they match his sitcom.
"The house came on the market and really, I just thought, I have to buy this house," Franklin told The Hollywood Reporter. "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. ... Seriously, I love owning this house."
It was also his way to thank fans. "There are probably 250 fans per day that show up and take a picture in front of it," he said. "It will be a lot more fun for the fans because now the house will look like the Tanners really live there. It's a gift to the fans, but it's also fun for me to own it."
On top of that, the producer is looking forward to making the home a part of the show's reboot, "Fuller House", which streams on Netflix. The revamped sitcom premiered in February and is now gearing up for a second season which is due on December 9.
