Not a problem split the property into circuits left & right or front & rear, instead of up & down :^O

Don't forget you could have a seperate RCBO for your fridge/freezer, so that your food doesn't spoil if the ring main trips out.

Well.... TBH. don't see that this is any different from a 16th ed CU in a single story dwelling!

Number of floors is irrelevant IMHO! :|

e.g.

Yellow book 314-01-01:- divide into circuits to avoid danger and minimise inconvenience in the event of a fault!

So I would of had at least TWO socket and TWO light circuits anyway!

with 17th I would just make sure some sockets and some lights remain on in the event of one RCD operating.

divide any other circuits suitably! ;) :D
