Xref attach insertion point problem

This is probably a really dumb question, but i am having problems inserting xrefs. I create a floor plan in a clean drawing and start the building in the lower left hand corner on 0,0,0. When I xref the drawing in to a sheet file using xref and insert to 0,0,0 and scale 1 the floor plan (0,0,0) and the sheet file (0,0,0) do not match up. This is causing a lot of headache when attaching multiple xrefs that piece together a large building. Does anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it or do I just have to live with it.

Thanks for your time,
JR

In each file, type BASE and made sure the same x,y,z coordinates match.
INSBASE is the system variable.

See if that helps.
