story
A habitable space between two floors of a building; a set of rooms on the same floor or level. Biber v O'Brien, 138 Cal App 353, 32 P2d 425. All the rooms on one level of a building; a horizontal section of a building. 32 Am J1st L & T § 1662. A term commonly used in expressing a maximum height restriction in a covenant contained in a deed or land contract. Hobson v Cartwright, 93 Ky 368, 20 SW 281. The relating of an event or series of events, real or imaginary, in words uttered orally or written. A literary work. As used in a lease describing the demised premises as a "story" or a "floor," such term includes the outside of the walls inclosing such story or floor as a part of the premises demised, for it is the apparent intention in such cases to separate a section of the building as a distinct tenement. The words "story" and "floor" define the lower and upper boundaries of this, but there is nothing to fix the lateral boundaries except the boundaries of the building. 32 Am J1st L & T § 166. See rumor; upper story.
