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

They mean the same and there is no connotation of difference.

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.
