[new builder] Builders drop resources on ladder

Sometimes hearthlings who construct buildings simply drop resources at the top of the ladder. These resources can’t be used in construction.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Project a big enough building
  2. Craft less resources than required for finishing the building
  3. Sometimes hearthlings will simply drop resources mid-construction.

Expected Results:
If current hearthling stopped building, he should return the resource to the stockpile. Or another hearthling should pick it up.

Actual Results:
Such dropped resources count as “existing” for your town (building menu shows them in the total amount of resources required). Hearthlings, however, simply ignore these resources as if they don’t exist, effectively stalling construction forever. Currently the only way to finish construction is to obtain/craft more resources.

Here we can see 3 clay bricks and 1 wooden log (under the highest brick). Unless we craft 1 more brick, construction won’t proceed.
