Summerhouse on sloping patio

I wonder if anyone can advise :-

We have just bought a summerhouse in kit form and would like to locate it on our patio but the patio has a noticeable slope (water runoff?). Over the length of the summerhouse which is about 16 feet I think the difference in patio level is around 10 inches.

We would like to raise the summerhouse floor off the patio to avoid sitting in rain but ideally remove/reduce impact of the slope at the same time does anyone have any suggestions for a good solution.

No real option other than propping it up level on bricks or blocks. On the high side it only needs to be 20mm of the ground. Without relaying the paving doing the above and hiding the exposed area with a timber skirt is the only real option.
