The standard height of each story in a building can vary, but a common estimate is around 10 feet (3 meters) per floor.

It is a fact that each building standard height is decided with well planed architecture engineering and made with required or minimum height of ceiling which ensures that there is proper ventilation, lights facility (sunlight), good looking environment and comfortable living inside each room of house.

In general, a one-story building might be around 10 feet tall, a two-story building around 20 feet, a three-story building around 30 feet, a four-story building around 40 feet and a five-story building around 50 feet.

Multi-story buildings can vary widely in height based on their purpose and design, but they often follow similar height increments per floor.

The standard height of a one-story residential building is often around 8 to 10 feet for each floor. Commercial buildings may have higher ceilings, ranging from 10 to 14 feet or more, depending on the purpose and design of the structure. Building codes and local regulations play a role in determining these standards.

The standard height of a two-story building is typically around 8 to 10 feet per story, resulting in a total height of 16 to 20 feet for a 2 story.

The standard height of a 3-story building is typically around 24 to 30 feet, with each floor averaging about 8 to 10 feet in height. Keep in mind that specific building codes and designs can lead to variations.

Well planned house of single storey or multi storey consist of different rooms like kitchen, guest room, bedroom and others, their standard height is depending upon location of the house, climatic condition of environment or it varies from country to country as per their local house bye-laws and regulation of Municipal authority.

However, if there is no any significant rule to follow contractors and development by public and private sector tend to reduce the size of dwellings being developed. Bye-law of local Municipal authority for minimum height of building and room size standards allows well planned and systematic construction of residential house and towns, and that provide proper utilization of space.

Let us now try to find out and understand human being height in different position in house. Before deciding the floor to ceiling height minimum, we try to understand human height in different positions in a room. Consider the average human height is around 5 feet 6 inches. But when we raise our hand in upward direction towards ceiling, let it will be increasing 1 feet, so total height of human being with raised hand around 6 feet 6 inch maximum. So, considering this fact the minimum height of the ceiling of first floor house will be decided.

Standard height of first floor building is sum of height of floor level from road, height between top of floor to bottom face of ceiling and thickness of roof slab.

Standard height of floor level of house from road is ranging between 300mm to 600mm (1 feet to 2 feet). However, in general, it will kept 450mm (1.5 feet) high from road.

Now calculating ceiling height, average height of men with raised hand is about 6.5 feet, consider fan hanging from the bottom face of roof slab that is ceiling is about 1.5 feet downward side, and taking 1.5 feet gap between humane with raised hand and hanging fan, some people height are more so taking 0.5 feet extra gap. Calculating all these we get around 10 feet height from floor to ceiling.

In general, roof slab thickness is kept around 4 to 6 inch thick, considering thickness of slab is 0.5 feet.

A parapet is a barrier that is an extension of the wall at the edge of a roof, terrace, balcony, walkway or other structure. Average height of parapet wall extension is about 2.5 feet.

In civil practice, Architects and civil engineers keep the floor to ceiling height approx 10 feet in most cases for ground floor building and 9 feet for next floor. Again let’s try to understand this fact also. Therefore from the above fact, we can find that the floor to ceiling height should be minimum approx 9.5 feet for any good habitable room in residential home.

**Standard height of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and multi storey building**

Well planned house of single storey or multi storey consist of different rooms like kitchen, guest room, bedroom and others, their standard height is depending upon location of the house, climatic condition of environment or it varies from country to country as per their local house bye-laws and regulation of Municipal authority.

However, if there is no any significant rule to follow contractors and development by public and private sector tend to reduce the size of dwellings being developed. Bye-law of local Municipal authority for minimum height of building and room size standards allows well planned and systematic construction of residential house and towns, and that provide proper utilization of space.

The standard height of building is about 10 feet (3 meters) per story, therefore, the height of a 2 story building is kept about 20 feet (6 meters), while a 3 story is kept about 30 feet (9 meters). Moreover, the height of a 4 story building is kept about 40 feet (12 meters), while a 5 story is kept about 50 feet (15 meters). In addition, the height of a 12 story building is kept about 120 feet (36 meters).

**Standard height of 1 storey building**

Standard height of 1 storey/ single storey building will be decided using Thumb Rule, the question is arises what is the average height of one story house and how tall is normal one storey house. Standard/ average height of 1/single story house = height of floor from road + floor to ceiling height + thickness of rcc slab + parapet wall extension.

Standard/average height of 1/single story house = height of floor from road + floor to ceiling height + thickness of rcc slab + parapet wall extension.

Standard/average height of 1 storey house = 1.5 ft + 10 ft + 0.5 ft = 12 ft, so average height of one storey home is kept around 12 ft high from road level, if we add minimum 2.5 feet extension, then their average height will be goes upto 14.5 feet high.

In India, the average height of single storey house is kept around 12 feet or 3.6 meters high from road level, if we add minimum 2.5 feet extension, then their average height will be goes upto 14.5 feet tall.

Standard height of 2 storey/ two storey building will be decided using Thumb Rule, the question is arises what is the average height of two story house and how tall is normal two storey house. Standard/ average height of 2/two story house = height of 1st floor from road + ceiling height of 2nd floor + thickness of 2nd floor rcc slab + parapet wall extension.

Standard/average height of 2 storey house = 12 ft + 9 ft + 0.5 ft = 21.5 feet, so average height of two storey home is kept around 21.5 feet high from road level, if we add minimum 2.5 feet extension, then their average height will be goes up to 22 feet high.

In India, for residential building, using thumb rule, the standard/ average/ normal height of 2 storey/two storey building is kept around 19.5 feet high from road level, if we add minimum 2.5 feet extension of parapet wall on edge of top roof, it will goes up to 22 feet high with extension. This is considered normal, average , good and comfortable height as it allows for provides aesthetic space.

**Standard height of a 3 story building**
