Hello:

I am a Chicago licensed contractor. The question you have asked and in order to answer it will depend on a lot more information that you need to provide me. I have been in the business for a very long time and specialize in this type of work. I have all of the required trades to complete a job of this type and have done many in the past. Based on this feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience. The best time to reach me is in the evening when I'm not in the field so in order for me to assist you and get you started with this process, we will need to talk. Also, please note that I lived at 63rd and Narragansett, so I know the area.

How does your house compare to others on the street? Are you asking about raising more roof area or just finishing off the space there now?
Be sure the zoning and floor area ratio for your lot are checked before you spend money on plans, you want to be sure you can do the work you contract for.

You will need an architect, city permits, and a contractor. I would interview about two or three GCs and see who gives the best price and has the best references.

You will need an architect and a good contractor. You will need to get everything approved by the city.

Feel free to contact me for some good recommendations.

Dear AANJO70,

Yes you will need an architect to do drawings and find a licensed contractor. I have worked with a really professional contractor Eugene Fahey and his number is 773-447-9687. Who ever you choose as your contractor will have to get permits from the City of Chicago do the work.

Hope this helps.
