Another thing we want to do is get our Caulk Texture. Caulk texture is see through.
We place this texture on an area we don't want see or use. To get to this texture we want to go to the Main Menu Bar-Textures. In the sub menu in Textures go down to "usage" in there we want to select Tools

Now in our Texture Viewer Select Caulk. Make sure your box is selected
In the Menu Bar Underneath brushes menu there is a small Box if you highlight that box with your mouse it will bring up Hollow. When your box is selected click this button to make it hollow. It now should look like this

The next thing we want to do is get rid of the excess and overlapping Sides. Press "Esc" to unselect our box. In our 3d View we want to go inside our box. Using our right mouse button will get you inside your box. Once you are in your room hold down shift and select all four walls. Now with them selected go to your menu bar once again and look for a icon with XYZ We want to click that once. What this button does is change our View in the 2d View Port. Top/Front/Right
Drag your walls down in the Front 2d View Port and up so that it is inside our flour and Ceiling
