A few months ago, news broke that the real Full House mansion was on the market. I appealed to you readers -- and the universe, in general -- to gift me $4.15 million so I could move into and hold raves in the pop culture landmark. Spoiler alert: That didn't happen.

But someone did have the funds to snatch this piece of '90s nostalgia, and it happens to be someone we know: none other than Jeff Franklin, the creator of Full House! Here he is in front of my... I mean, his house.

"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 told The Hollywood Reporter.

One of the first orders of business after purchasing the property was changing the color of the front door from a sacrilegious sea foam to the appropriate red that fans of the show know and love. And Franklin also has plans to change pretty much everything about the current interior of the house to reflect the Full House set -- and to open up the possibility of shooting the Netflix reboot Fuller House there.


This is all very cute and full-circle and all, but what's in it for me, you might be wondering. Well, Franklin is also interested in renting the house to fans who've always dreamed of crashing at Danny Tanner's immaculately clean house. I call dibs on Uncle Jesse's old room (maybe he'll come back for his framed pink bunny wallpaper and, um, stay awhile, if you know what I mean, and I think you do?). Hey, stranger things have happened, like Full House, a cute, saccharine, not-that-good show retaining relevance for multiple decades.

Wanna take a peek inside the Full House mansion? I'll answer for you: yes, you do, because there's an entire room dedicated to mallards. Check it out:
