I could help with this. As of bootstrap 3 it takes into account mobile
devices so its easy to code a layout with html and css and no need for php.
Question is is it worth fixing whats there or writing something entirely
from scratch.

I would advocate a write from scratch approach if possible if not. then I
would love to start working on moving the mobile side of things towards
bootstrap.
