“I moved into a bungalow. I wanted a house, but that’s another story”

A “story” ("storey" in the United Kingdom) is another floor of a building. One joke is:

“I moved into a bungalow recently. Was going to move into a house, but that’s another storey.”

The joke has been cited since at least 2010, in a post about the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
