How to level the frame for decking?

How to level the frame for decking?

Hi everyone , 

I am trying to build the composite deck in my alfresco . As the conceret floor is little bit uneven all around and the level of the concrete with the entry door is just 133mm high .And the size of the deck i am trying to build is 5050×3131mm. So  just wanted to know how can i level the base for the decking without laying the structure in the ground and level with the door ( if possible bit low than the door level). Thank you all in advance

Pedestal feet, or Klevaklip adjustable joist hangers - depending on your frame construction style.
