This seems to happen with any kind of stair too

Thought was worth mentioning. The stair leaves a hole in wall when placed by wall

@SproutLee I'm not having stairs disappear or cause holes in the wall in my game while building on terrain, so could you perhaps provide a more detailed set of steps as to how the problem occurred in your game?

I’m seeing something like this but not related to terrain. I get this with walls down view, and it puts the walls on the side of stairs down too.

@BryonyRae I'm seeing this as I move the camera around 

I also tested this on another lot and it seems to be only happening on (Umbrage Manor)

Or it might be because there's no ceilings around it. 

This only happens when I'm on the floor above

I tested it with flat terrain, and it still happens.

That lot must be bugged, because I'm not seeing this on any of the other lots.

@SproutLee Sorry I'm late in getting back to you on this.  I took a look at Umbridge Manor in my game, and I still don't see the issue, even after modifying the space to make it look more like it does in your images.  The images remind me of the known issue we have in this thread with regard to visibility of lower floors in apartments.  This is the first I've seen of it happening outside of apartments, but perhaps something in the steps you took in modifying the build caused the issue.  I wonder if you wouldn't mind the following: 1) start a new save, 2) go to Umbridge Manor in that save, 3) take a video (or write down) each step you take in modifying the build until the glitch happens, and note when it happens in the process.  That should help us narrow down the cause.  Thanks!

@BryonyRae Here's a video of what happens on a repaired game and new save. Seems like the outside trim comes inside the building when placing fencing near a wall as well.
