First question would be why it's not level as that can influence what one would do about it.

Is it an even drop from one room to the next or is the floor sloped?

Uneven floor

The floor is slightly slopped. This happen when new floor was put in joining old floor to living room.Not terrible but could cause problem putting down hardwood flooring. I have carpet down now.

What type of wood flooring are you going to put down? It makes a difference if it's solid 3/4" tongue and groove or a thinner click lock floating floor.

In the carport, did they build up the flooring height to match the existing house? As previously mentioned, is the floor sloped on a steady plane, or does it dip in the middle of the room?

The floor was built up to match existing for in living room.It does have a slight slope where the 2 rooms meet.Other than where the 2 rooms meet everything is level.I would be putting down the lock type flooring.Thanks

Just use a "T" molding between the two floors which will allow for a transition from one floor profile to the next.
