Workflow for two editors in separate work environments.

Me and my colleague Rod work in a few projects together. We don't live far from each other but we cannot have any shared storage which make things complicated.
So far here's what we do: we get all the rushes from the client, I back it up to my harddrive and then I go to his place where he does the same. We then separate tasks and one of us creates a Premiere project, with all the ingested media and sends a copy of the project via dropbox to the the other. We can now work in different parts of the project separately. In the end of our tasks being completed I then send my project to Rod and he imports the relevant bins and sequences to his project, sending me a copy of it afterwards.
To add security, we both work from a Thunderbolt G-Raid, 16TB, working as RAID 1, which means we have 8TB capacity each.
We also use DiskCatalogMaker with a shared catalog to track each others drives.
Does this sounds ok, or would you suggest a better way?
