Not the same thing. With the release of HD (see Release Notes), the housing chests were changed so they work much like the vault does. Instead of two chests for a Deluxe House and three for a Kinship House, there is only one chest now. The capacity of the chest should be the same as the total of all the chests the house had before HD was released (30/60/90 for Standard/Deluxe/Kinship). You can expand Standard/Deluxe house chests to 120 slots, and Kinship house chests to 180 slots. Yours is not a bug, but due to the changes made by the expansion.
