Depending on ceiling height, the average height of a two-story home might vary. Typically, a storey is equal to 10 feet. Taking into account 8-foot ceiling heights and a 2-foot provision for the roof’s infrastructure, a two-story home would be approximately 20 feet tall.
Some homes have higher ceilings, which makes them taller than 20 feet. However, calculating stories is not always as straightforward as doubling the story height of the home’s first floor. If they differ from the first level, the roof pitch and ceiling height on the second story also affect the calculations. However, some city rules limit the height of two-story homes for aesthetic reasons.
