Too bad we can't go splitsies on the 'Full House' house

My Full house of cards has come crashing down. I was so damn excited a few hours ago after reading that the Tanner/Katsopolis Victorian — the TV house in which I most wanted to live as a youth who did not yet understand the glory of privacy — was up for sale. It is not. Some lame other house is. This is so sad. I was going to ask if any of you wanted to split the cost. I mean, I have like $200. But I bet there were enough Full House fans to make it happen.

I was going to call shotgun to live in the attic, where I would tape up inspirational glamour shots of Uncle Jesse’s hair and accept occasional, scandalous visits from Steve Holt precursor Steve Hale. The first person to join me would probably want Danny Tanner’s stunning master bedroom, which boasts a creepy fireplace, a reorganized closet, and a hole in the wall! Whoever joined our FULL HOUSE next could have had the bedroom with the inexplicable pink bunny wallpaper. The next roommate could live in the spacious Candace Cameron Dream Teen Luxury Suite with her annoying little sister. We would have “Locomotion” parties in the basement with the totally ’80s jingle-recording equipment. We would force our drunken overnight guests to pile up in Michelle’s crayon bed. Everyone would be welcome except for Andrea Barber, who would need to KEEP OUT. (Update: Andrea Barber loves this blog item. She is now more than welcome and can even have the attic.)

And now it will never happen, because real estate rumors are crazy and also because the T/K dollhouse was on a sound stage and not real. Carry on with your day as I go work out my aggression on a StairMaster, collapse into a heap, and then agree to eat spaghetti and meatballs for dinner after a heart-to-heart with a lady in the subway station who looks nothing like Aunt Becky.

    You are so crazy and fun, Annie! Loved the article and the nostalgic imagery it conjured.

    • Stephanie Tanner

      Annie was wrong about Stephanie! She was not annoying, she was by far the most interesting and pretty of the Tanner girls. I wish they had more episodes about Stephanie. The minute she said “Can I speak to Mr. Boat, Mr. Oat Boat?” I thought she was going to be a big star. Rotten Michelle took too much of the spotlight.

        I love d this show

  • Anna

    that was phenomeonal! i totally would have pitched in and taken the pink bunny wallpaper room. to sleep where uncle jesse slept…bliss.

    • Stephanie Tanner

      Those were Stephanie’s bunnies!!!!!

  • Lucy

    Those are the Painted Ladies where they had the picnic in Alamo Sq – not the Full House house!

    That house is on Broderick St. Well the exterior of it is. The interior was a set in LA.

  • whatevs

    I don’t believe there are enough Full House fans to cover the cost…

  • gtrgrl

    that was one of the best posts ever… i enjoyed my trip down memory lane! =)

  • Angie

    You’re nuts. Andrea Barber would be MORE than welcome, as Gibbler was the funniest person in that house. It’s just that she would need to keep her shoes on 24/7.

    • Madd

      Gibbler doesn’t need an invitation, she’d join us anyway.

    • Stephanie Tanner

      Exactly, her battle of wits with Stephanie were classic!

  • Stacy

    Totally call the big room that DJ/Steph/Michelle shared… I think my college tuition will be better spent on this… :-p

  • Angie

    OH. Dibs on Joey’s Alcove. I wanna be in the middle of all that inevitable action.

  • Julie

    You forgot that before we realized there was a ridiculous amount of space in the house, someone could awkwardly live in the alcove in the living room slash keep their clothes in their car!

  • Michael

    That was an awesome article. The best part is the lady on the subway who looks nothing like Aunt Becky. Hahaha!

  • Madd

    I’d want Uncle Jesse’s old room with the pink bunny wallpaper. And Steve Holt (Steve Holt!) inspiration Steve Hale is welcome to eat all of our food anytime. I’d also want that weird Abe Lincoln head/water gun Uncle Joey had in the first season.

  • LostinDharma101

    Man, I loved that show and reading that piece was cool. I would want the basement which was a studio for Uncle Jesse but was once Joey’s bedroom. Oh, memories. Seen all episodes.

  • val

    Steve Hale…Steve Holt(!). How have I not made the connection before? Was there a memo passed around to 20-somethings who grew up watching original eps of Full House and now spend their days with their dog Maeby? Because I need to be on that list.

    • Madd

      Please tell me you are actually a 20-something with a dog named Maeby. Because I’m 25 and about to adopt another dog, and I want to name him Gobias (after Gobias Industries).

    • Stephanie Tanner

      You know the guy who played Steve voiced Aladdin and went to Harvard in real life towards the end of the series, I think that is why D.J. and he broke up.

      • Madd

        But they got back together in the last episode, didn’t they?

      • Lala1983

        He came back and went to prom with her, all while Michelle had amnesia from falling off a horse. I know all there is to know about “Full House” and “Saved By the Bell”!!!

  • Stephanie Tanner

    The girls rooms were better before Vicki’s mom re-decorated it for the worse.

  • Snowflake

    What about Comet? He even did tricks…
