Mixing Bootstrap and custom?

I'm wondering if it's common for websites to be built using a mix of Bootstrap and custom HTML/CSS/JS. Bootstrap seems like it's very limiting.

Definitely. Bootstrap is convenient but you can't make something your own with JUST bootstrap. A ton of websites use it so you can imagine every website would have the same colors, fonts, etc..

trick is to link your custom css to the html AFTER bootstrap, so bootstrap doesn't style over your custom styles.
