Having trouble with getting flexbox child elements to be 100% height. (Codepen attached.)

Can anyone explain to me why my three white columns aren't stretching to 100% height? Bonus question: what's up with the extra margin below the bottom of the viewport?

In order for 100% height to work all of the parent elements need to be set to 100% as well. I believe you still need the height set to 100% on the .content-area and .main-content selectors.

You will also need to remove the height from the .content-area.row so that the sub header isn't stretched.

Hope that helps.
