I was looking at a 3-story 2000's townhome in a good community built on a hill - The top 2 stories are both open on all sides, with the bottom one under road level and closed off on one side.

            |    Living Area       |
Road Level  | Garage     | Bedroom | 
XXXXXXXXXXXX ________________________
XXXXXXXXXXXX| Bedroom    | Bedroom | Backyard|

Considering it's a new-ish home, should I be worried about the Garage being on top of a bedroom? We were planning to have our children live in the bottom floor, so that's added a bit to the anxiety. Is this a fairly common scenario in homes on hills?

    What is your anxiety? The car falling through the floor? Not likely.

  • As silly as it sounds - Yes :(. Is this a thing I should worry about at all? Commented Jan 31, 2021 at 8:57

    Assuming that the house was designed this way, don't worry. If an unqualified person changed a living space into a garage, then worry. The latter doesn't seem likely.
