Help With Building Two Story Deck?

I want to build…or rather, have built by professionals…a two-story deck on the back of my house in Chicago. I want a very simple “off-the-shelf” rectangular wooden deck that is common here. The city requires architectural stamped drawings for issuance of a building permit. My question is this…does anyone have such a deck?…do you have your architectural drawings?...would you consider providing me with a copy (for a small fee I’m sure)?

I would like to take an existing plan…hopefully nearly identical…and make the necessary modifications to suit my project. I have engineering and drafting background so I can handle the plan adjustments myself. I would however, like to avoid the cost of having an architect render the drawings for me. I would then of course have the modified plan stamped by an architect. Thanks for your help!
