Umm, in a word - no. There are 2 issues at hand. One is your
neighborhood CC&R's. While you may be able to obtain a building permit, the
prevent you from actually installing it. MOST housing developments have them
and they also usually have a HomeOwner's Association that regulates what can
and can't be done.
The second is the building permit. You need a copy of the local building
departments regulations so that you can see what's allowed and what isn't.
So you need to have a specific neighborhood in mind before you can get
any idea of what it'll take to put up a tower.
PS - You better get a copy of Fred Hopengarten, K1VR's book on zoning and
regulations to anticipate what you're going to need and know.
