Back to the Ladder Ballet

I am desperately trying to finish painting once and for all this year.  I'm just about finished priming the east side (about nine hours so far).  I had removed shingles and nails from this side last year.

 It's difficult working here, which doesn't really translate to these pictures.  There are steps down a fairly steep slope.  Thank goodness I bought an adjustable leg ladder.  I'm also more comfortable working near the electric line this year.  But not comfortable enough to be careless.

While the paint's drying, or when it's too humid I'm working on the west side, where I've run into my first badly rotted out wood.  I'll have to replace part of a corner board and starter strip.
