“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.”

One of the first changes he made was reinstating the red front door, which previous owners had painted green.

“There are probably 250 fans per day that show up and take a picture in front of it,” Franklin said.

He chose the exterior of that home for “Full House” in the late ’80s and paid “like $500” for footage. “We didn’t need to go back there until several years later, but by that point the owner, I guess had become annoyed with fans coming by, and they weren’t in a cooperative mood.”

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