One UK writer offers cash-strapped employers a way to make cubicles for less. The trouble is, the quality of these cubicles (as well as their fire safety) is pretty questionable. Basically, you glue several layers of cardboard together to make each cubicle panel of your desired height and thickness. Then, you find a way to prop the whole thing up to make a workspace. Sounds like a lot of work for a cube that might not last a week. If you’re really looking to save money, it makes more sense to purchase used cubicles. Even if they aren’t the height you want, you can easily make them taller with inexpensive but attractive and highly durable panel extenders.
