Creating mockups, use flex box and the default w/ modernizer or stick with old box model?

I'm re-creating my own portfolio site and am wondering if it is a little too early to utilize flex box – I haven't found many sites using it in production. Has anyone used modernizer flex box with results for modern browsers?

personally, I prefer to use (Bootstrap 3)[http://getbootstrap.com/] on big projects the grid system is really helpful and docs are good.

But it depends on the client, and what visitor browsers are going to be used. If you a majority of you users are IE8 then I would think again. But it is not impossible, it would just require a lot of fallback code for incompatible code.

I looked in the bootstrap although it seems to be often too much CSS. I'd like to find some systems such as flexbox that works in the meantime for legacy browsers. Looking to create a similar grid as this website – but not really sure where to begin other than creating separate modules and adding a few media queries.
