With many years of construction experience under his belt and well-aware of recent state law changes making Accessory Home permitting and construction more affordable, Tim Harrington leveraged his position to begin an Accessory Home project on his own property in Granite Bay.
“The Placer County area is prime because many parcels are sized to handle an Accessory Home,” said Harrington.
The original intention of the Accessory Home was to house Harrington’s aging mother, but her health digressed in the midst of building. Switching gears, Harrington began to see his Accessory Home as an income opportunity.
He and his company, Lexington Construction Inc. (LCI), developed a custom 3 bed, 2 bath, 1,200 square-foot Accessory Home that boasts an oversized two-car garage and screened patio -- making the home feel larger than it is. Complete with modern finishes, this Accessory Home is one to be jealous over.
Once construction wrapped up in Spring 2020, Harrington began renting the Accessory Home for $3,000 per month -- proving that an Accessory Home can provide income to homeowners in Placer County.
He hopes his story will help others see how lucrative building an Accessory Home can be.
“There is definitely an income opportunity for those that would want to put an Accessory Home on their property.”
