Why is it such a nightmare making custom Bootstrap changes?

I have tried to create a navbar similar to the one seen here http://www.autotrader.co.uk/. When it scrolls past a certain point it follows the screen and a home icon slides out. I know that if I code it outside of the Bootstrap grid that I can make it however is this bad practice whilst using Bootstrap?

Thanks any help would be great.

Bootstrap is a framework that is designed as a starting point. It doesn't have restrictions on how to use it, so it is not bad practice (in my opinion) to code around the exsisting Bootstrap navigation and grid.
