You need an enginer to calculate the footings and beam sizes. The house needs to be designed, its mass calculated and suitable column and beam sizes calculated. Nothing given to you on the top of the head is worth the effort.
Caculations start at the top. Total static mass, dynamic mass. Then you can design columns. As you go down , the columns carry more weight so are usually bigger/stronger. Same with beams.
Defining the beams and columns without any meaningful calculations as you have is therefore a stab in the dark.
Again, go see an engineer. Pay him for his time, thats his job. You dont get a doctor to fix your car. We are amateurs here with an interest and some with experience, thats all.
My other observation of what you specified is that it looks rather underdone compared to my previous project plans. Mine could have been over engineered for all i know.

When I built my house the 8 metre long beams had a lot more 16 mm rebar in them than that. Off the top of my head some had up to 12, depending on their position and what they supported and most of the beams had a minimum of 8 16mm rebar. You need to get a draftsman to put it through his CAD programme otherwise it will just be grief in a few years or less.
