Well... It needs sole work, which framework are you using?

I just rebuild mine and i suggest you to draw on a paper what you want to reach first, then start coding.

A good understanding of some framework, or simply CSS Grid or Flex could help.

I'm just about to release a flex based, lightweight css framework in less than a month, my new portfolio is built with it, check it out if you want:

Why would you need a framework for that? Simple flex-box and some good typography and for a minimal portfolio site it would be enough if that's his goal.

Yup, i said it too in the comment, have you read it all? πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
I made my own css framework using flex, just need to import those parts for grid system and so, no need to import entire framework, that's the point.

The thing is - you didn't. Read what you wrote again.

EDIT: And now you edited it.

I said you can use a framework or CSS Flex or Grid clearly, it's not my job to decide what he must use, only answering to the OP, by the other hand... When you use a framework, do you import it all, so you assumed that use it for a portfolio could be inefficient?

Using a framework and importing just what you need is as efficient as could be if you type it all from scratch. I imported (from my own framework) only the components i need (containers, grid system, accordions, modals, typography and colors) and i'm getting a 100/100 on pagespeed, because there isn't unused css or js on it, and the size is pretty lightweight, even i didn't optimized the images or cache policy yet.

Check it out:

If you want or need a full workaround i'll set the points here, ordered:
1- Draw what you want to reach on a paper, a simple wireframe (mobile and desktop).
2- Generate a Git project, clone it and set parcel.js (or rollup, or webpack) on it.
3- Start coding your structure in a file called index.html, with html5 (you can use pug or something similar if you like). - Only a single block of content.
4- Style this content block as you want, - Flex recommended, but you can use Grid too. If you are not familiar with those two features, or want to get it done faster, you can simply use a framework like Mustard UI, bootstrap or whatever you know or want to learn. Simply make sure you import only what you use. -
5- Repeat steps 3 and 4 till you have the entire layout done, from header to footer.
6- Optimize assets (scss and js will be compiled and optimized by the bundler if used correctly, i highly recommend you to optimize images by your own with your preferred software as bundlers mess it up a bit or makes a poor job that leads yo to loose too image quality).
7- push your project's new version to Git.
8- Build for production.
9- Deploy.

Obviously there could be tones of correct workarounds to reach same result.
