    # of floors in a house

    Hi there!

    Whenever describing the size of a house, is it correct to say this?

    My house has two floors.

    Cheers,
    Tito

    Yes, but it's more normal to say you have a two-story house.

    In BrE, that would be a "two-storey house".

    I don't find either one more normal or natural than the other. I'd probably use "My house has/My house is on two floors".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
