You want to make a responsive site using media queries.  I suggest using either http://getbootstrap.com/ or http://foundation.zurb.com/

Both have a responsive css grid and other nice features you will like.

Thanks I'm working on a site for a small business.

How do I recognize the mobile device and send it to the mobile page?

Those templates are great.

How to run any project with ease

Manage projects of all sizes how you want. Great for personal to-do lists, project milestones, team priorities and launch plans.
- Combine task lists, docs, spreadsheets, and chat in one
- View and edit from mobile/offline
- Cut down on emails

This is an approach. Was hoping for something to detect mobile.

There is no detecting mobile.  Instead you are detecting the viewport and sizing your objects appropriately or in some cases you are moving objects around from multiple columns to stacked.  

See the grid http://getbootstrap.com/css/#grid

The sample below will create 2 columns where the left is wider then the right larger screens. On a phone the div's will stack.  This is because the grid is based on 12 columns. Notice md-8 and md-4 will total to 12.  Read through the link I gave you about the grid.
<div class="row">
  <div class="col-xs-12 col-md-8">.col-xs-12 .col-md-8</div>
  <div class="col-xs-12 col-md-4">.col-xs-12 .col-md-4</div>
</div>
