Painting progress

Something has changed since we last posted an exterior house photo. Any guesses?
We've finished priming and are about to start painting the siding. The photo above was taken before we finished priming today. A few hours later, our siding is now completely white. And yes, that's me on the scaffolding--three tiers above the ground. 
We've discovered how tedious it is to paint our cedar shake siding, Scraping, pressure washing and priming was much more time consuming than we anticipated. We're having some newlywed bonding time during our hours spent circling our home with the different phases of the project.
This is what the siding looked like after scraping and pressure washing.
And now, after priming.
Next step: paint!
