Looking for advice for entire house remodel

i just bought a home a couple months ago that is a fixer upper. I am looking for some sort of design professional that can help me plan the entire remodel. I would like advice on things such as opening up the floor plan, where to best add a half bath, how to redesign the heating and cooling ventilation, and many more. I also would like to do as much of the work myself as possible. I currently have a permit to rewire the home, and am in the process of doing so. I am not sure how to locate someone like this. I have tried just looking up general contractors, but I seem to only find those that do their own work. Any advice on how to get started on this? I live in Columbus, OH.

Thank you!

If your doing major renovations vs just paint and remodeling you need an architect.

If no major structural work...it would be an interior designer. It will also take an architect and/or structural engineer to review the designers ideas to see if they are feasible. The designer or design firm will normally already have people they work with.
