Huge Footer w/ Bootstrap

Anyone have any luck implementing a large footer? Like this http://blog.firmhouse.com/

I'm using bootstrap (considering switching to Zurb, perhaps) in a Rails 3 app if that make any difference...

Just start a new container-fluid div and then add your custom styling to it.

<div class="container-fluid" id="footer">
    <div class="row-fluid">
        <div class="span3">
            1st Widget
        </div>
        <div class="span3">
            2nd Widget
        </div>
        <div class="span3">
            3rd Widget
        </div>
        <div class="span3">
            4th Widget
        </div>
    </div>
</div>

Play with the css to get the padding and margins correct.

My site is bootstrap with semi-large footer - http://jodyalbritton.me - It's still early days, I just made the move from wordpress to a custom blog engine I built in rails.
