The problem is the default directional light is shining on those walls from behind. Add the code below to your initialization. If you go to one corner and turn around to face the adjacent corner, you will notice the portion farthest away does not show. You may want to set the camera range a little higher to correct this.

make light 1
set point light 1, 0, 50, 0
set light range 1, 7500

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I knew it had something to do with shadows after days of messing around with it but I couldn't find the right command to fix it!

You're welcome, Tyler. I have streamlined your code to show a little variation in technique.
