The layouts specify the overall widths of the site and the main containers such as site inner, wrap, content, and sidebars. In this lab, you will explore strategies to calculate these widths and then have each automatically generate based upon the base width. This step will save you a bunch of manual time as you adjust the widths for each component in the project. Then you continue finishing up the the Layouts Sass module. You'll also get the opportunity to use the Bourbon Neat framework for calculating your column class widths.
