The creator of Full House just pulled off one of the most meta moves to happen in pop culture! Jeff Franklin had the brilliant idea to buy the original and iconic Tanner home in San Francisco for $4.15 million, THR reports.

Franklin first teased the purchase in May, where he revealed that he was house hunting in the area. The property is located on 1709 Broderick St. and provided a sense of comfort for eight years for not only the Tanner family, but the longtime viewers of the show.

The creator tells THR that he plans to film and host events in the house, as well as possibly rent it to the public. "It's a shame to let it sit empty," he says. "I will be renting it out, but I'm not sure yet what, where, when or how. At some point soon I will figure that out." 

He wants to change the house's interior to match the series and has a fun idea for the Full House 30th anniversary on Sept. 22, 2017:

"That will be around the time that all of my construction will be done, so I hope to bring the cast up to the house and have a big slumber party here so people can drive by and actually see the Tanner family living there for one whole day. That would be pretty fun."

Franklin is also the producer of the Netflix Fuller House revival, whose season two premiere is set for Dec. 9. Watch the holiday-themed trailer here, and then dig deep into even more nostalgia with the latest episode of Fuse's Besterday podcast below:
