Jan Rouleau: House on a boat tribute to man's wife: Newspaper Obituary and Death Notice
Herald, The (New Britain, CT) - June 7, 2001
Deceased Name: Jan Rouleau: House on a boat tribute to man's wife
The New Britain native has constructed a 3,100 square-foot home that he's taking on a seven-city barge tour of the East Coast to raise awareness of cancer and help raise $10 million for cancer-related organizations.

Known as Jan's House of Hope, the abode on a boat is a tribute to both Rouleau's wife, who died from lung cancer, and to the millions of people in the U.S. who have fought cancer, he said.

Rouleau got the idea for the project after working on a house that was built inside the Mall of America in Minnesota. The house was built for the Christmas shopping season, decorated by local companies, and then sold, with the proceeds going to charity.

"One day I saw a barge and thought about Huckleberry Finn and thought, 'why not,'" he said.

The tour, which kicked off last week in Portsmouth, N.H., is in Boston this weekend and will arrive in Branford next week. Other stops include New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Norfolk, Va.

At the end of the three-month tour, the house will be dismantled and auctioned or sold along with and all of the furniture and equipment inside. Rouleau said he isn't sure if the house and furnishings will be sold as a single lot or piecemeal.

"The way this house is built, a builder would be crazy not to take it as is," he said.

A 10-day celebration is planned in Branford where the 150- by 60-foot barge will be moored at the town dock. The stop is being sponsored by the Connecticut Hospice Foundation, which recently opened the Hospital of Love, a new facility on the Branford shore.

After the barge arrives on June 12, volunteers will spend several days preparing the house to welcome visitors. It's a formidable task. Everything that moves has to be packed away each time the barge is towed out to sea, and the house itself has to be tied down at eight different points to keep it from toppling over in a seaway.

But two days after its arrival, the house will be ready to receive its first VIP visitors. And on June 15, the house opens to the public for 10 days of tours. The house will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Admission is $10 per person with all proceeds going to Connecticut Hospice.

The 3,100 square-foot house was built from a modular design that was donated to the project, Rouleau said. Sections of the house were made at a factory and then shipped in 16 tractor-trailers to Portsmouth, N.H. for final assembly on the barge. The house features three bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, a three-car garage, a vaulted great room, a second-floor media room, and a large kitchen/breakfast room.

All of the materials and the design work were donated and the house was decorated with the assistance of Home Magazine, which will feature it in an upcoming issue.

A longtime marketing and public relations executive in the housing industry, Rouleau says he didn't have to work too hard to find donations for the house. The result is that the house is filled with all of the latest high tech gadgets, including flat-panel televisions, stereos, and kitchen appliances.

The donations are the key to the project, he said, because they allow every penny that is collected from the tours and various fundraisers that will be held at the house can go directly to the charities.

"It's just an unbelievable feeling to see how good people are," Rouleau said. "Everyone's making a difference by doing a little."

Though the tour is just starting, Rouleau said his experience so far is summed up best by a conversation he heard one volunteer carpet installer have with his son. The boy, he recalled, asked his father why he was working on a Saturday and not getting paid for it.

The man, a cancer survivor himself, said 'it's payback time,'" Rouleau said.
