This F4SE plugin allows building and placing objects in workshop mode everywhere (see note below) you want. Inside other objects, in water, even at air. Also makes almost all scrap-only objects (yellow) selectable/movable. Also you can move objects out of green zone and leave them there, while I do not recommend do this - if you think your settlement borders are too tight, just use border expanding mods like Build High (be careful though, as that mod conflicts with scrap mods and can cause reset bug).

Allowing building in water has a side effect - all objects which requires water to be placed in, now can be build/placed everywhere also.
Put water-purifiers everywhere!

You can move workshop workbenches, power armors and pretty much many other, previously unmovable objects (by default this mode is off - press INS to enable). Be careful, though, save before moving/deleting such objects!

Build restrictions (only in dirt, out of green zone) still there. The only problem is that objects with such restrictions (and all if outside workshop) will still be highlighted as able to build, but in fact they are not. You just have to remember - no building outside of green zone and if object says it has to be build in dirt, then so be it. You can build such objects in valid place first, then move them anywhere your like.

You can toggle on/off out-of-workshop-zone timeout, so you can move built objects from your settlement as far as you like. Though, I'm not sure if placing settlement objects outside of settlement will not cause any issues, so do it on your own risk

You can precise rotate objects by X, Y and Z axis via mouse buttons (default) or mouse wheel (see config option). Tapping ctrl key changes rotation axis. Numpad + and - changes rotation angle step.
You can precise move objects by X, Y and Z axis via numpad keys. 2,8 - up and down, 4,6 - left and right, 7,9 - to and from player. Numpad / and * changes movement step.
You can change scale of objects via numpad keys. 1 - scale down, 3 - scale up, . (dot) - reset scale to 100%. PgUp and PgDown changes scale step.

You can make movable objects like armor, weapons, junk, e.t.c static (kannot be kicked and don't fall) and back. Default hotkeys - 'Home' turn object physics on (make it movable/droppable if possible), 'End' turn object physics off (make it static if possible) - doesn't work until fixed.

For scaling, precise rotation and movement work, make sure object you want to move/rotate is just highlighted (outlined), NOT selected (floating in front of player).
For ANY numpad actions to work - check if NumLock is ON.

Last 10 actions (precise movement/rotation/scaling) can be undone with Backspace key (default).

You can save some object's parameters (position, rotation angles and scale) with '=' key and set all or some of this info to other objects. 1,2,3 - set X,Y,Z position, 4,5,6 - set X,Y,Z rotation angles, 7 - set scale, 0 - set all parameters.

All hotkeyed actions shows notification when activated.
ALL hotkeys and notification messages can be changed in config file (Data\F4SE\Plugins\place.ini)
If you don't have place.ini yet, rename place_example.ini to place.ini
Information about what any option do can be found in place_ini_help.txt

If you don't want any additional  features, except 'no-red' functionality - you can install one of predefined config files (see Misc section if Files).
