Thanks Standard smile

 

The stairs seem to be causing it:

If you lower the foundation height a couple of notches so you have four steps the glitch doesn't occur:

Using CC/Mods is at your own risk, EA are not responsible for making the game compatible with 3rd party content, the creator is.

Has this always been there or does it appear with the holiday decoration? Could you upload this build to the gallery and I'll test it in my game?

This has been happening since before I got Seasons.  Which was just recently. It happens to me in different worlds, different foundations, etc.  I mostly notice it on decks.   And yes I will!  I uploaded it to the gallery under the name TEST.

Huh, that's weird.  Thanks for the workaround! Would like if it didn't happen though.

Unfortunately, my save files for the Sims just randomly disappeared.  After hours of trying to find them and recover them, I have given up.  So THANK YOU for wanting me to upload that to the gallery, because now I won't have to build it again!
