0004722: Can't build wall
I've made a fortress in an above ground tower, so obviously wall-building is working for the most part, but there is one tile on ground level that I can't build anything on because I keep getting "mason cancels construct building, creature occupying site" every time I unsuspend the construction. The construction site is near what used to be a busy hallway, but I locked a door to remove all the traffic (the construction site is still accessible though), and I'm sure no dwarves or animals are walking through the tile.
Not sure how to reproduce
No tags attached.

Does your mason have a pet that is always with him/her? Have you tried canceling the order and starting it again? That should allow you to watch and see what is happening.

Reminder sent to: zyxwvut

kwieland posted a question - does your mason have a pet that might be following him and blocking the site?

Also, if your mason is a leader/mayor, there may be someone following him for a meeting and also blocking the site.
