How to have an Add-in to reference other Visual Studio projects?

I'm converting my add-in from COM registration to the new add-in model. I created a new solution which includes a toolbar and dockable window. However my solution contains several projects which are .dlls and I am having trouble getting the addin to reference them at run time. All the examples I've seen are a single project only.

One thought was to install the addin in my program files directory and add that directory to the list of directories ArcMap will search for addins in. But I'd prefer to have the addin in the well-known folder.

Any ideas?
