Jeff Franklin, the creator of the TV show “Full House,” has bought the San Francisco house used to film the show for $4 million.

Franklin hopes to use the home for filming and may possibly rent it out to the public in the future, according to an exclusive by The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s a shame to let it sit empty,” Franklin told THR of the 1883 property.

Although the 2,500-square-foot home was redesigned and recently marketed as “sophisticated,” Franklin wants to remodel it to match the set design of the original sitcom, making it look as though the Tanner family actually lives there.

“The house came on the market and really, I just thought, I have to buy this house,” Franklin told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview. “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.”

Franklin has already repainted the door red and said around 250 fans a day come by to take a picture in front of it. He will be removing the iconic door while construction is completed, however, so that it won’t be ruined, he told THR.

The interior of the house was not used for shooting except for some very early stock shoots in April 1987, but the series reboot “Fuller House” may use the home for shoots in future episodes, if it is renewed for more seasons by Netflix (the second season already wrapped up shooting for release Dec. 9).

The 30th anniversary of "Full House" will be Sept. 22, 2017.
