    Lanterns, you say 'i wish to release this' and target the lantern (or anything you want to unlock) then pick it up.

    Then, when you delete the house, they will either fall to the ground to be picked up, or they are items that you will -never- be able to pick up. that happens some times.

    I'm sure there are other ways, things that were stuck in a previous house, that didn't go away when the house did (you will find pictures and items just sitting somewhere, with no way to pick them up, this is an example of that)
    or some things are in a box, which is axed, releasing the item inside it. It then 'sticks' and can never be picked up again.
    you can call a gm to have them removed, iirc, but why? looks like of nice if you're lucky enough to have it look like it belongs to your house.

    the hanging lanterns are static items, and if you need it removed I would imagine only a GM could do it

    if it was my place, I'd build around it :) I think they're cute

    GMs are not known for their haste.
    However, you might get jumped in the queue, when the GM sees how simple your request it. that happened to me. once.

    If your on Pac shard....I think I saw your place...with the two lamps out front. Wondered how you did that....if not, then I know there is another person with the same situation.
