Do I need a building permit for my project?

According to the Illinois Building Code, no building or structure shall be erected, constructed, enlarged, altered, repaired, moved, improved, removed, converted or demolished unless a separate permit for each building or structure has first been obtained from the building official. Code requirements vary in different cities and counties around the state. Check with your local building department
to find out what's needed in your area. You may want to check city, county and/or town if necessary. See below for links to those agencies.
