    Hello,
    Is there any difference in meaning between the words floor and story (storey)?
    Do they have different connotation?
    Thank you in advance

    Re: floor vs story

    My husband thought that stories might be viewed from the outside but floors from the inside.
    This building is 24 stories, I live on the 12th floor (not story). (?)

    Speaking of floors and storeys: A three-storey building in Britain/Australia has a ground floor, a first floor and a second floor.
    In US, it has first, second and third floors.
