Here are some great free responsive HTML templates that have been made available by several generous freelance web designers. These free HTML/CSS web templates can be used as starting point for your own designs or used as they are. Please just don’t resell or distribute without giving credit to the author. If you are looking for more advanced or premium designs you can get high quality ones from Themeforest or TemplateMonster. If you are looking for a free HTML5 starter template to build your own site I would recommend Boilerplate or Initilaizr which allows you to download a responsive or Bootstrap version of Boilerplate.
I hope you find at least one site from this list that will be useful to fork into your own design or use as they are. Please download what you want and share.
