Default CEC transitioning conduit types

I am going to install EMT with ground in a garage for a receptacle. When I exit the garage to the exterior I want to transition to PVC for about 5 feet where I will then go into the home near the panel and transition to non metallic liquid tight.

In the garage I want to install an LB right before I transition to PVC conduit.
Where I enter the home with a PVC LB, what is the appropriate method to transition to flexible conduit without having to install a box?

Can I thread a PVC TA into the metal LB?
Yes they make female adapters that I have used a lot to transfer pvc to emt for stub ups from the slab .

This sounds DIY. No electrician would use liquid tight.

Do you want the cheap, easy way or the compliant way?

EMT to boxes?

Why not do conduit to a connector then thread a rigid coupling on and spin a teck connector and go teck outside?

I guess at that point you could use polytuff
