San Francisco CNN —  

The last time Jodie Sweetin stood on the steps outside the red-doored Victorian row house featured in the “Full House” opening credits, she was about 6 years old.

The actress, 34, remembers it vividly.

She had just wrapped the first season of the series and went to San Francisco with her parents for a family vacation. Her mother got the address for the now iconic house from the show’s creator Jeff Franklin so they could pay a quick visit.

Sweetin still has the hastily snapped photo her mom took of her, clad in a pink sweater, standing on the front steps.

“I haven’t been here since,” Sweetin told CNN on a chilly afternoon last week as she and the cast gathered at the home to celebrate Season 2 of the spin-off “Fuller House.” “It’s great to be back.”

The cast reunion at the house was made possible by Franklin, who recently purchased the home for about $4 million.

Franklin admitted it was a surreal experience seeing the new and legacy cast members at the home.

In the new series, which debuted its first season back in February, Candace Cameron Bure plays a widowed DJ Fuller who is raising three boys with the help of her sister (Sweetin) and best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber).

“It’s a great moment for me,” he said. “I just felt like we should keep this house in the family.”
