Edges as borders/frames


I have search a lot for a solution like this, but I don't find it.

I have a cube with a lot of faces, each face is a window.
What I want is to make all the edges between the faces to be like a frame, a window frame, so I have to make it thicker. I know I can do it with the edge loop tool, but I wonder if there is an easier way to do it, faster way?
And if I use the loop edge tool, then I won't get the frames a symetrical width :/

Is there a solution for me?

Thanks in advance!

You could uncheck the option "keep faces together" on top of the "Edit Mesh" menu. Then extrude all faces and scale them slightly.
