Not just happening to columns, also happening to chandeliers. It's all related to the same problem.

They don't see the floor on low level rooms. I think something got messed up on their basement floor fix.

Raising the floor level up and then down again in Build/Buy resets it all, columns as well, but it doesn't last. It comes back after a while.

@Jeaohn I noticed this for the first time last night, I thought it was me until I went to look at a few houses I had downloaded from the gallery and they all have the same issue

There are a few workarounds:

  • Draw walls and then delete them.
  • Recolor the column. You don't have to actually change the color click the selected swatch. 
  • You can also raise the foundation and then undo it and it should work. I use this one because it fixes all of them at once.

@SweetieWright_84 You do not need to build a wall or a fence, just pretend to build at least one segment and come back on your track with the wall or fence tool and all the columns will show the intended height on that floor and at times through the entire build, If not repeat the action on the other floors. But bear in mind the problem will come back when you load the build again.

@Jeaohn You don't even have to do that. You can just move the foundation up and then undo it. It fixes it all at once.I was just listing the things I knew worked for others. I think the most efficient way is the foundation because it does it all at once. Unlike changing the color of each individual column.
