The main criticism I’ve seen for Foundation is that its bloated, but if I choose to only use the grid then that isn’t an issue. So I guess my question is are there any other negatives before I delve into it and hit a stumbling block?

As far as I know Foundation is Open Source MIT license, so you can extract the parts you need and make the framework that fits your project. Although, I would suggest CSS Inuit. Very lightweight and based on BEM-style naming convention, Object Oriented CSS.

Here’s Harry Roberts creator of CSS Inuit, and two of his talks about CSS.

I didn’t get to read all the responses, but hopefully this wasn’t mentioned before.

Hope that helps.
