I cannot comprehend the HTML and CSS of this project

I don't really have a problem with Andrew because he's really good. Though, I examined the HTML markup and CSS of this project and my whole world became confuse. hahah. Is there a better way to achieve this kind of design?

Of course you can! Be sure to create a well organized html, then you start to design the page. I recommend to you use brackets because of live preview feature. if you not familiar yet with CSS, use width as column with percentage! check my project also to see your profile using treehouse api:

The best option would be to go and learn HTML and CSS first before taking this course. Sure there may be minor changes in the DOM and are focused soley on JavaScript but html should be familiar to you before diving deeper into these course. You do not need to finish a HTML or CSS track just become familiar with what they are talking about by reviewing those basic videos.

I already finished HTML and CSS track before diving into . I'm sorry for over reacting.. I do understand how the design of this project came to be.. I just found it a little weird.. If I were the one to design this project, I'll do flexbox approach or inline-block instead of floats and I will wrap the elements in an organized manner. Though, thanks for your suggestion! :)
