How to Clip Display Reference?

Is there a way to clip a Display Reference?  See image below as an example.

 

Top Image: I'd like to clip out the Glass House Display Reference where the red outlines are.  [in Autocad it's an Inverse of an XREF Clip]. Ideally both red boxes but just the bathroom would be sufficient.  I've tried sending the Glass House to the back and I am not able to clip the Display Ref independently from the Elevation.

 

Bottom Image: This is a new wall but an example of how I'd like the top image to look.

Thank you,

This is my first post so I hope my signature shows up correctly. 

 

Edit - my signature didn't appear so pasting it in now.

Instead of turning a display reference on, simply send two layout boxes to layout, one over the top of the other, and clip to your hearts content.

@Renerabbitt Thank you!  That's a great idea!

 

I also changed the transparency and color of the Display Reference which helped as a work around but not as good as clipping.

 

(figured out how to get my signature too!)
