Could you please check this output and let me know what I did wrong? I have 2 severe errors and one fatal error that I don't quite understand.

Thank you

@Summertime_244 does this post and/or this post answer your question? You likely either didn't create a construction assembly for the surface (wall/roof/floor) named "Surface 591" and subsurface (window/door/skylight/etc.) named "Sub Surface 212", or didn't assign the type (outdoor/ground/etc.) of construction assemblies for these surfaces to the construction set that you're using.
