Your design should work and I like the idea of notching the side rails and fitting in the rungs.

My only concern would be to really be careful about the grain in the rungs. Make sure that there are no large knots to weaken the rung or grain runout that could allow the rung to split and fail. 2×4s are pretty lousy these days and it will pay off if you choose sections carefully.
