Outdoor Living 1
Soriano refused to use screens in the houses he designed, expecting the sliding doors to be left open at night. Soriano did my house in the Hollywood Hills a glass box with a magnificent orientation, Shulman says. I told him either we have screens, or we don't have you design my house. So he designed three screened areas, and the house functions perfectly. I planted a jungle of trees which now includes a huge 85-foot redwood and made Soriano look good.

Outdoor Living 2
Most people whose houses I photographed didn't use their sliding doors, Shulman says, crossing the living room toward his own glass sliders. Because flies and lizards would come in; there were strong winds. So I told Soriano I wanted a transitional screened-in enclosure in front of the living room, kitchen, and bedroom to make an indoor/outdoor room. Shulman opens the door leading to an exterior dining area. A bird trills loudly. That's a wren, he says, and steps out. My wife and I had most of our meals out here, he recalls. Beautiful.

Leading to Jungle
We continue past the house to Shulman's beloved garden he calls it the jungle a riot of vegetation that overwhelms much of the site, and frames an almost completely green canyon view. I planted hundreds of trees and shrubs back there you can see my redwoods, he says, gesturing at the slope rising at the property's rear. Seedlings, as big as my thumb. They're 85 feet tall now. He pauses to consider an ominously large paw print in the path. Its too big for a dog. A bobcat wouldn't be that big, either. Its a mystery, Shulman decides, pushing the Mercedes ( his walker) past a ficus as big as a baobab.

Sculpture Garden
We arrive at a sitting area, with a small pool of water, a fireplace, and a large sculpture (purchased from one of his daughters high school friends) made from Volkswagen body parts. Shulman lowers himself onto a bench and absorbs the abundant natural pleasures. When I bought this land, my brother said, Why don't you subdivide? You'll make money. He looks amused. Two acres at the top of Laurel Canyon, and the studio could be converted into a guest house it could be sold for millions.
