Hi All, running into some challenges with the entry door area to finish the hardwood flooring in the living room. The bottom door sweep of course is too low, so I plan to trim the bottom by a 1/4" or so to get it high enough and allow for a small rug at the entry. Couple of questions I have as I make these changes.

Assume I still need the expansion gap and plan to put a threshold in place which will actually make the transition that much higher. This will also make the exterior threshold lower than the interior. Is that a concern? Here's a pic show roughly what it would look like.

If I could avoid the expansion gap and run the flooring right up to the existing exterior threshold it will would be higher, but not as high. Would that be an option? As mentioned above, I don't believe so, but wanted to put that out there.

Lastly, with either option, as mentioned the exterior threshold would be lower and I'm sure something would need to be done at least for the portion under the door. As you can see in the pictures though, it won't raise up as is and I really don't want to replace or refit the entire exterior threshold. What options are there to easily raise the exterior threshold?

Appreciate any input you all may have.

Thanks - Lance

You may want to fasten the baby threshold to the existing threshold like in the first picture. Then you would have an expansion gap. You could screw the baby threshold to the existing aluminum threshold with 10-24 countersink screws.
