Especially if you do it wrong and end up with random gaps in the ceiling!

I do not upload. Some of those houses don't even exist beyond a picture and a memory. I shouldn't even take credit for those. I have a tendency to model my own buildings on designs others have done. The red one was modeled after plasticbox's Quigley. The first one with the large dormer window and the garage with two dormers was modeled originally after plasticbox's Fleetwood.

I have a tendency to reverse-engineer whatever I like about a specific build or style and mimic it and make alterations.

I have recently found out that If floating tiles appear one just has to:
1- "unpaint" all ceilings (not deleting the floor just removing the ceiling paint by holding ctrl + shift)
2 - remove spiral stairs or ladders (modular stairs don't seem to matter)

Then leave to play mode. If one has done those steps correctly (no ceiling is painted anywhere and there are no stairs) the ceiling "regenerates" and there are no holes and no floating tiles anymore. They will disappear before your eyes once you enter live mode (this is quite satisfying to watch.

You can then enter build mode again and paint all the ceilings and add stairs. Sometimes this causes floating tiles to appear at other places but donĀ“t panic you just have to repeat the previous steps and they will eventually be gone for good I promise. I never had to repeat it more than three times

It is important to never delete the floating tiles with the hammer tool or with any other method. If you do or did in the past this method will no longer work on the lot.

I will try to make a tutorial later with some pictures to make it easier to understand.
