Can I model a single family residence with more than three stories?

Yes, since all single family buildings regardless of number of stories are considered low-rise residential, you can use do this (the three-story limit does not apply to Occupancy Group R-3). Note however that the CEC CBECC Res engine is limited to 3 stories so you will just have to trick it and input the building as though it were 3 stories.
