“I just thought, I have to buy this house,” Franklin told The Hollywood Reporter last week. “It’s great to have the house in our ‘Full House’ family and be able to preserve it for the fans.”

No further photos were taken, so “our audience has watched the same cars drive by that house now for 29 years,” Franklin said.
