It should be noted that when the translation STG (=snap to grid) button is active you CAN NOT manipulate the Y-axis (=height) freely because is also snaps to the height grid - which happens to be 3.048 in my experience.
So if you use Foundation Building Blocks - turn off STG, search for the right height for your floors, walls etc. and place a SINGLE ONE. Then torn on STG and you can use copy/past to align all your elements along the grid. When you need to insert something with a custom height, turn off STG again.
The rotation STG is mostly used for aligning 45°/90 walls when building fake interiors or buildings from scratch.
