Its usually best to discuss matters in the Help forum before deciding its a bug so that the bug tracker does not get overwhelmed with poor quality bug reports or bug reports that require no action.

due to its fundamental nature CAD software does have a steep learning curve....I hope you stick around and become more familiar ...but I think starting with more simple items would be good advice ...a full house design is, or can be, complex.
Please always post your Help men about FreeCAD data with your posts in these forums, as so much changes so quickly it is almost always helpful at the time or certainly in the future when people are looking back to an old topic for a resolution of a similar issue.
Arch WB is a rather recent addition, which Yorik has updated a lot, so if you want to use it, you really should be using the very most recent FreeCAD you can get. i.e. compile from master/install from PPA/install a snapshot release all of which are currently 0.16dev versions. 0.16 will likely be a release version very soon now and has developed a long way past 0.15....

sounds like you are mixing tools from different workbenches, which is often a good idea, but can be inappropriate and may possibly in this case be the cause of some of your issues.

for any complex model "save as" is your friend....save often ...save files for different versions. When Yorik first started the Arch WB, I designed several houses as a way of helping him debug Arch. At the time there were obviously many more missing features and issues, as Yorik was still at the beginning of writing the work bench. So I used the logic of designing to a "stable point" then "save as" thus creating a new file for something that might have unwanted consequences.
JLB85FR wrote:BTW, is there a way of repairing or editing with a text editor, all the design file ?
The simple answer is "yes, sort of". The fcstd file is a zipped archive, you can use the FreeCAD "project" tool to pull apart a fcstd file and reassemble it...but this is very advance expert or developer territory ....definitely not of any value to a new user.
So in summary, you are welcome here, but please always post your "Help about FreeCAD" data, always discuss "bugs" on the help forum first, and start learning FreeCAD with simple projects first. Also FreeCAD is fantastic and has advanced an incredibly long way over the last few years ....but it is still a "work in progress" as the version number implies, 0.16 is a long way short of version 1.
