deck support

When replacing a deck -24 by 12- free standing , and having a height of only 15-16 inches off the ground (door entrance)which technique is best to use to support the beams.Ill be using 2 by 8-outer and support beams and then 2 by 6 for joist under the regular decking boards.That will not leave me much space there at beam closest to home but ground has been regrated to go down hill at outer end.its about 18'' or so at outer end .thats only a inch or so off the ground at area closest to home .

There are several options with the galvenized supports,some go in the concrete also and have a 1 inch base piece too.
Which option would you recommend under the paired 2 by 8 support beams?
Maybe raise the concrete piers and go directly on them with the 2 by 8s?

Use 2 X 10 joist and skip the beam.

Size:  26.8 KBThanks for the info.
I decided to do a single support since there is so little room under it.Will i need to double the ends rim joist/ and sides -and use 2 by 10s ..im using 2 by 8 joists?
I will raise the concrete piers and install frame and support on the concrete piers.
Can i still use the supports for the 4 by 4s -the type that have a wavy bottom that goes into the concrete-and put a spacer in it between boards and screw sides in on the 2 by 10 frame/rim joist and the 8 inch tubing for cement?
