Hello @lingkernyurk.

It seems your OBJ file don't have the correct normals for the door. I downloaded your OBJ and opened it with 3DSMax, here is what I can see : 


See the dark red color ? It indicates the normals are flipped.

It's the same for the other part of the door (you can compare with the lighter red on the house) :


For me it doesn't look as a bug.
One way to disable it Babylon side would be to set the corresponding material like this:

scene.getMaterialByName('JoinedMaterial__3').backFaceCulling = false;
