Lumber Calculator

A web app for optimizing lumber orders (from Home Depot). The user chooses a schematic from a pre-filled list, then chooses the quantity, and the app will generate a list of lumber to order, including how to cut each piece of lumber. My former team and I used this application to minimize our lumber costs at the City Year non-profit in Miami.

Technology Used:

  • Pug
  • Sass
  • Browserify
  • NodeJS
  • jQuery

Features:

  • Simple user experience: 1) choose a schematic 2) choose the quanity
  • Responsive design optimized for usage on desktop and phone, since we often used the App in the store on our phones
  • Improves upon a complicated Excel spreadsheet I had previously used to optimize our lumber orders
