    To each his own I suppose.

    If I did this I'd waste a lot of time reading other peoples CSS and probably bloat my codebase with it. I've pulled code from Bootstrap before only to find they used a complicated abstract JS solution when all I needed was one line of CSS.

    My two cents: if you have very high CSS proficiency, just go for it solo :)

      I think we're on the same side! Bourbon is just a library of scss mixins for compatibility based stuff.

      That's exactly the reason I don't want to use Bootstrap etc, I like to think I am pretty proficient but I've never taken on a project as complex as this before, I guess I was just asking for best practices when creating your own frameworky type thing.
