Basically I need help starting my new project

Mini Elevator
-motorized
-3 floors
-able to go to any floor by control

Questions
How should I go about starting this project?
Circuitry? How will I know what components will I be needing for this project?
Programming? How should I go about coding the program.

Thanks for the help in advance, any advice will be greatly appreciated.

You should probably start your project off with a building permit and an elevator shaft  XD

What exactly are you trying to build?

without further information i'd suggest you do the following;

look at how real elevators work and think how you could scale down the mechanism/s
get an arduino and learn the basics
play with stepper motors (to get precise positioning) and microswitches (to detect when something has arrived somewhere)
think about belt drives maybe
get some clear ideas which will lead to clear questions and ask again

have fun
