OK,
It worked out to be 1 1/2 inch difference from carpet in hallway to the new floor.
I've searched around the site and can't find a "how to" on this, so I'm back...what's the best way to deal with this?
Thanks again!

Exactly where does your SLC end in that doorway? Does the door open into the room or out of the room?

the slc ends at the inside edge of the jamb, at the trim.
I blocked the door with a 1x1 when I poured the SLC.
It makes the floor one continuous edge that lines up with the inside of the drywall.
The door opens into the room, it will need to be reduced in height. thought about making a joke about taking half off the top and half off the bottom, but it's just too late in the evening to do that!

"PERFECT"!!!

You can make (or have made) a wooden threshold/reducer that matches the tile on the one side and tapers down to about 3/4" on the carpet side. It would be the width of the door jambs (+-)4-1/2 inches). This way tha variance in the reducer is only going to be about 3/4" and will actually go unnoticed for the most part.

If wood isn't desireable such a reducer could also be made from stone. ($$$$$)
