Add 2 courses to a solid walled extension

I have a small solid-walled extension on my kitchen.

The roof is single-pitched tiled roof rising from just above the door to 1 course below the upstairs window.

I want to raise the floor about 3-4 inches to be level with the rest of the house. That will require the door to be raised a similar amount.

Is it possible to add a couple of courses to the rear wall and change the angle of the roof (assuming it will still be steep enough for the tiles)?

How can this be done within building regulations?
