Why won't exterior oil based primer dry inside?

Diane asked 5 years ago

I am adding a front porch. I have brand new cedar posts, trims, etc. I am painting it with oil based primer inside my home. The first things that I painted dried in 3 days. The last boards are still not dry after 10 days. I have used fans and heaters. Someone told me the room is saturated with oil fumes so it won’t dry, and that you can only paint the wood outside in the open air. What is your take on this? Any drying suggestions?
