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".
