I'm in build mode and trying to create new rooms or walls within the house, then it makes all doors, windows and stairs disappear. Everything is a hassle to place down when there is plenty of room and no obstructions.

@BettyScream Well, that's pretty extreme. I wonder if maybe your game might need to be repaired through Origin.

Have you tried with Move Objects on? Also, any platforms in the build you're trying to work on?

The move objects didn't seems to work either but thanks for the suggestion. 

The house is on a platform, does that mess with things?

@BettyScreamYep, platforms can mess with things. I've used them in some builds, but they can be tricky little devils.

You might want to just use a regular foundation for the house while you get the floor-plan, window, door, and stair placement, etc., the way you want and then go back and put platforms just where you want them on top of the foundation. Sometimes the platforms will still take out a wall when placing them against it, but it can be replaced most of the time.
