Default Re: first floor - bottom floor?

Given that a 0 floor doesn't exist, us Americans call the ground floor the 1st floor, or at least in my neck of the woods.

If a building does not have multiple stories, we call it a one-story building. I.e., I live in a one-story, or single-story house.

In America The ground floor is the us first floor its the first floor were coming into. when playing urban maps i hear alot of international players say ground floor and first flr in their term which in my term is first and second which would confuse the inter and us players a bit. say theres an ar on the 4th floor of the t building it would be the 3rd floor in inter terms.

I wouldnt say its a problem but 7 years on its still a thing saying bottom floor as the first in inter from the start is like saying the first floor in the us

Your friends aren't stupid mineral its how we say our floors if i came to yalls countries and say first as ground/bottom yall gonna call me out because its a different meaning over there

It's not EU thing, it's naming convention from UK (and UK only if I'm not mistaken) and UK is no longer part of EU. For example, here in Finland the first floor is the one on the ground level.

If it's not obvious from the context, I usually ask if somebody is using UK or US floor system when they start talking about floors.

This confusion will keep existing as long as PR exists

Ground floor is a lot more intuitive for everyone because its the ground so it has to be bellow the 1st floor.

I'm not even sure what term each variation uses but l think a person that struggles with English can easily arrive to that conclusion so l think its by far the best term to use

Exclamation Re: first floor - bottom floor?

In USA we have many different setups.

G can be Garage or Ground

L is always Lobby if the building has one

G1 and G2 is different underground garage floors.

Ground floor and first floor of a house are interchangeable.

You come across American elevator, this is what you might see.

1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5

G - 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5

G - L - 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5

G1 - G2 - L - 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5

Ground floor or 1st floor in USA is normal.

In PR I find the confusion is when you mean the top floor, and not the roof.

I will often call out " HE IS ON THE TOP FLOOR" and I do not mean the roof, then I have to explain the 3rd floor or whatever.

I call first floor ground floor interchangeably, but I don't call second floor first floor, boom problem solved.

just like in the elevators...

and bottom floor is not the 1st floor, your friends are wrong and you are right

No idea where you live, but this logic pretty much only applies to buildings with elevators here in Rio. I live in a 5 storey building and there is no "ground floor", only first floor and beyond. There are actually units on the first floor, so I guess it's the same case as the russian building in PR.

...also American. Where the ground floor IS the first floor, and where the top floor is not the roof. This also does not change if the building has an elevator. BTW, they call that a lift in the UK... I guess we're just raised differently.
