Default backface culling rendering

I've built a room. I navigate it with backface culling turned on so that the reverse sides of walls are invisible so anywhere I move a camera even outside the room I always get a good view of the walls facing towards the camera.

My question is can I render it with the same backface culling ? .
When I render it ignores the backface culling so if I shoot from outside the room I just get the outside of a box, not the inside walls facing the camera.

Any help appreciated,

doh!

Backface culling is for viewports only. If you want to render faces as single sided you need to go to the object's render stats atributes and untick the Double Sided attribute. If you're getting the wrong sides rendered you can tick the Opposite attribute or flip the normals.
