Installing a door to the deck

How would you go about hanging a storm to a deck? We have screened in the deck, but now we want to install a storm door to
keep out the bugs in the summer and snow out in the winter. The opening for the door is about 48 inches wide and 81 inches high. We purchased a door that can be shortened to accomodate the height of the opening. The storm door is the standard size both height and width for a house door. I know we have to build a frame, but I am stummped as how to measure how wide and high the opening must be for the storm door. Can someone there give me some easy instructions? I might add between my sister and I we built the deck from scratch, screened it in. We had the roof put on by a contractor, otherwise we have done all the work ourselves.
PS Winter is coming soon in this part of the country and we really would like to get the door up before the snow flies.
