uneven carport floor ?

My husband added on a garage to the existing house/carport. He has now closed in the carport to try to create another room. The slab is not level and slopes. He is wanting to place a plywood sub floor over this but then it will cause the existing backdoor to be approx 6 inches lower then the floor. To open the door he will have to have a sweep section of the floor to continue to be the original concrete and then it will go into the sub floor. This appears to me to be causing a place that will be easy to trip, hard to clean and an unhandy design. Do you have another suggestion.

Thank you

Some pictures would sure help. Hard to understand some of your post.
Plywood should never be installed directly to a slab floor.
