Neighbors are fuming over possible plans to make an iconic San Francisco home even more famous. The house used for the TV show, "Full House" has always attracted fans to its Western Addition neighborhood, now the show's creator, who also happens to be the new owner, is doing renovations.

While the iconic "Full House" home in San Francisco may look like it does on the tv show on the outside, the inside looks completely different.


The home on Broderick Street regularly gets attention from tourists. "My niece said she wanted a picture of the house," said tourist Adrian Angeles.

"I remember it when I was a child," said another tourist Anna.

Afterall, it's the Victorian where the Tanner family lived on TV's "Full House" and now the Netflix reboot "Fuller House."

Some think the house is one of the painted ladies from the opening credits.

"We love "Full House," we love the movie, but it's becoming too much," said neighbor Andrea Scott-Finney.

Neighbors shot video of what things look like outside the "Fuller House" on most weekends. It can be a traffic jam. One car even crashed while double-parking.

"Double parking, loitering, littering," explained Scott-Finney.

Neighbors are taking their complaints to the planning commission.

Interior renovations happening at the home have neighbors believing the house you see on TV is being recreated inside for filming and possibly public tours.

Jeff Franklin, the show's creator, bought the house earlier in 2017. He admits he may have announced plans to duplicate his TV home in real life, but has since scaled back those ideas.

"The set is not being replicated," said Franklin. "We're doing seismic upgrades and an open floor plan."

The exterior of the "Full House" home in San Francisco is well-known for being featured in the TV series, but the inside looks completely different.



As for loyal fans of the show, Franklin has paid for the no-double-parking signs out front and hopes friends of the Tanner family will be quiet and respectful.

On Thursday, the San Francisco Planning Commission took staff recommendations to remove a proposed roof deck and a window at the home.

Last summer neighbors filed a complaint with the planning commission against owner Jeff Franklin, over speculation the iconic home was being renovated to look like the set from the TV show.

"I may have talked about that when I bought the home earlier this year, but those plans have been scaled back and all we are doing now are seismic upgrades and creating an open floor plan," said Fuller House creator Jeff Franklin.

Franklin says he has no plans for public tours or filming in the house.

Since the show was rebooted on Netflix, it's created a new generation of fans who continue to flock to the Home creating traffic jams and loitering.

"We love "Full House" but it's creating quite an issue with fan traffic and it's hard to back out of my driveway now, " said neighbor Andrea Scott Finney.

The planning commission urged Franklin to work with his neighbors, and referred the case to the SF board of appeals for a hearing January 10th.
