Large Brown Spider, found in house

Large Brown Spider, found in house
San Jose, Santa Clara County, California, USA

Size: Leg span 2"
My children found this spider in the house this morning. We haven't seen spiders this size in the house before. The graph paper in the background is 10 squares to the inch, if that helps.
