Sothr.com is built on top of Refinery CMS. It was originally designed on top of the first edition of my HTML5 Responsive Bootstrap framework with a custom client side Javascript MVC built on backbone.js

After a year in hiatus I rewrote the framework and published it as a web-app-seed project on GitHub. After finishing that framework I started developing Ruby skills at Cargill to automate buisness processes. As a result I fell in love with the language and decided I wanted my site redesign to be powered by Ruby. Refinery CMS just offered an easier path for initial setup without restricting me to a particular design for the site, which allowed me to port over the look of the seed.
