Raising floor in mudroom 4 inches and putting in tile?

We have a mudroom off of our kitchen, on our main floor (above a full-height basement). Ive stripped the old vinyl flooring off the floor in the mudroom, and would like to raise the floor 4 inches to meet the hardwood floor in the kitchen and probably tile. Is there a convenient way to do this without removing the floor completely and raising it from the basement? i.e. can I build some kind of floor structure on top and put down ply? Its a small area, and currently it is chipboard (under the vinyl) laid down over the rafters. Thanks in advance, all!

Figure total height and then use either 2x3 or ripped down 2x4 that would allow you to match to the pitch of the existing floor, then cover with a subfloor of plywood, then the finished floor. What is the current room height from floor to ceiling at this point in the mudroom?
