Cool Transition at sliding patio door (laminated)

If this question has been asked before, I sure couldn't find it (and believe me, I looked).

I am installing a floating floor and am trying to figure out the best way to deal with a sliding patio door that is inset from the wall about 3 inches. The transition pieces I have seen are about 2 inches wide. The door is about 4 rows in from my starting corner and along the wall that the ends butt up against ( I use that term loosley since I will leave the required "floating gap"). I'm sure this problem has been addresses before. I just couldn't find it. So far I have thought about:

1. cutting all the other starting boards down so there is a 1 inch overhang available to put in the door gap (sounds like a lot of work to me)

2. Making a wood strip to butt against the plastic frame of the door so the transition piece can rest on it on one side and hide the laminate edge on the other.

Anyone have the "School" solution?

Use an endcap molding against the slider, and do as you describe in # 1 above. Who said it was easy??? LOL!!!
