San Francisco neighbors of the Full House home are ticked off that it’s now owned by the show’s creator
Ever since Jeff Franklin bought the iconic Victorian house last year for $4 million, he has been renovating it to match the Fuller House set. Franklin, said one neighbor, “is a Hollywood producer who has bought the house for commercial purposes—promoting it as a fan destination, using it for promotional events and filming at the house.” As a result of the renovations and renewed interest thanks to Fuller House, the neighborhood has become even more overrun with tourists, with the neighbor describing the problem as “150-250 or more visitors and 50-75 cars per hour, with 1,000 visitors or more on weekend days.”

Fuller House creator has stopped asking the Olsen Twins to make a cameo
“Personally, I’ve given up asking them,” says Jeff Franklin, who created both Full House and Netflix sequel Fuller House, in an interview with TV Line. “The door is open, but I’m not going to be calling them anymore to invite them. They just don’t seem interested in coming. It’s been three years of invitations, so they know the door is open. It’s up to them to decide if they want to come play or not.”
