Yes, building a roof deck in Chicago is no easy task and you certainly should be advised about building anything without a permit, design plans, etc. You must also consider whether local zoning will allow what you wish to accomplish. There are many restrictions on size, placement and ingress/egress. Talk with a reputable contractor and get several quotes. Good luck!

Is there a differenc between a 3BR and 4BR home? Yes. Is a covered spot better than a ture outdoor spot? Same answer. Especially in a winter like the one we've been having.

Here are some very rough figures:
Outdoor spot: $12,000-17,000
