    That would be the correct spelling in BE (AE storied) if you insisted on using the word.

    'A three-storey house' is good enough for most people and in every context I can think of.

    'A three-floored house' sounds equally odd to me.

    Note that Correct spelling of 'storeyed' would have been a better thread title.
