The flooring material continues with no elevation change or lumpy threshold to step over. A nearly seamless flow to the outdoors!
Flooring is same indoors and out with only a track line for sliding doors.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR says:
These flat or non-existent thresholds are combined with several door types. Photo #3 is a pivot door (btw -- I'm writing an ideabook on pivot doors to publish within the next couple of weeks) , photo #8 is a garage style roll-up door, and several of these are various types of sliding doors or French doors. So, there are various ways they are providing weather protection. It's either going to be on the bottom of the door or within the track system.
If you live in an area that actually has WEATHER!! -- like snowy places or the Pacific Northwest where it likes to rain sideways -- first of all, you should vacation in Puerto Vallarta -- and second, there are two wise moves for you to make if you want an opening that has a completely flat threshold.
1. Extend that roof way out over the exterior wall, by many feet -- how many depends on your weather.
2. Make sure that your exterior flooring slopes away from your house so any melting snow or run-off from rain goes away from your door -- not toward it.
Consult an architect or the door manufacturer for specifics, then mix a margarita, plunk a little paper umbrella in it and start picking out your flooring. ;0)
