Hi again examining,

Did you try the methods we recommended the last time you had this problem?

https://community.secondlife.com/t5/Technical/why-each-time-I-rez-a-house-it-seems-to-lean/qaq-p/2977935

If you did and that didn't work, come back and edit your question (via "Options" over there on the right) to give us more detail about what you tried and how it didn't work.

If you didn't try what we recommended, I recommend you do!

I think you should also try to figure out how you are accidentally rotating the house. Slow down when you're editing and... examine your situation?

;-).

Good luck!

Locking helps, but not if you're going to ignore it. :smileytongue:  For now, be sure that you have the Select by Surrounding and Select Only My Objects options checked in the Build menu.  Then fly or cam up over your house, turn on your editor (CTRL + 3), and drag a selection  rectangle around the entire house.  Then, use the rotation tool (the red, green, blue circles) to rotate the house to whatever orientation you prefer.

I suggest spending some time in a sandbox or your backyard practicing basic building skills with disposable prims before you do much more work on something big and valuable like your house.

Ya know, I did exactly that in RL. Dad got tired of swatting me away as he worked on our house, so he tossed me out in the woods with some hand tools and told me to build my own. I went through several generations over the years and finally got good enough to be let back inside... with power tools.

 

Next summer I'm heading outside again to build something like this...

My neighbor had professionals install a wrought iron arbor in her yard. She planted grape vines at the corners, which now grow nicely over the entire thing. I warned her that would attract critters, but she thankfully didn't care. Now I get to watch the wild turkeys hop all over the thing every August.

 

My only problem with that pergola is the metal splice at the apex of each rafter. They did that I to avoid the need for very wide timbers. I'm probably going to laminate curved rafters. There's a sawmill on the opposite side of Wisconsin from me that sells black locust lumber, which is good for 50-80 years outdoors. After spending the last three years repairing rotted pieces of my house and barn, I'm not going to build anything I can outlive.

The Emerald Ash Borer is here, but it's producing more firewood than lumber. In total, I have about 1000 board feet of cherry, aspen/poplar, willow, red pine, ash, elm, maple and walnut in my barn. Half of that was there when I was born. Half of it will be there when I die. Most of the woodwork in my house is made from trees grown on my property.

 

Carpathian elm burl is very pretty. I have some veneer, but have never figured out what to do with it. Maybe someday I'll make a grandmother clock.

 

Have you ever visited a Rockler woodworking store? http://www.rockler.com/retail/stores

It's possible that your house is Phantom, to keep its land impact value down, and there is an invisible prim that makes the walls "solid."  If you rotated the house, but not the invisible prim, the door openings may no longer line up.

Hit CTRL+ALT+T to see transparent textures.  Look for an area of red blocking your door.  Select only the invisible prim(s) and rotate it/them to match the house.

Another possibility:  You set the house from Physics Type "Prim" to "convex hull".  This will often reduce the land impact, but it will also "close up" any hollowed out prims in the linkset.
