Condemned criminals also spend less time in their cells than many spend in their cubes...

My wife actually proposed that we "recreate" her favorite cubicle arrangement in our new house - she wants an "L" shaped countertop with her monitor at the intersection, overhead shelving, and sufficient counter space to include her scanner, various documents, and good overhead lighting...

Anyone know about getting low-cost cubicle furniture installed in a residence? Also, what does low-cost cubicle furniture cost? Anyone have exp. installing such furniture in a residence?
