Sorry missed your question:
No, I tend to figure the layout as I go BUT the wordpress visual editor isn’t really WYSISYG and it’s trial and error i.e. do some layout – see what it looks like – make a change – see what it looks like etc. etc.
I know no editor is true accurate WYSIWYG but the lack of control and the way the visual editor removes html makes it tedious.
There’s also no way to see what it looks like mobile without using a mobile/tablet.
I doubt columns and tables would be very responsive.
