This is quite similar to the opening you played against me a while ago, so I take it you're trying to refine the general idea from before?
My honest opinion is that the opening might not work so well against anyone who plays standard textbook chess. In an example I played out, I simply played very standard with black and worked on controlling the center, getting quick piece development, and castling kingside early.
The final position itself looks quite nice, but it doesn't seem like it'd be easy to get into it unless the opponent was accommodating and allowed you to do this? It seems a little slow to me, maybe.
Much better to see it in a game, to see how this plays out.
In the position I got in my standard responses against the opening, it seemed to me that as black my position was pretty okay, I'd rather play black there I think. I could be wrong, it's much better to play over the board to get a better idea of what kinds of problems it poses.
On the plus side, as far as unorthodox openings go it's better than most I've seen, and black can certainly get into some trouble if he isn't careful. I just think strong players will handle it quite easily, exploit it, and you could easily end up worse from the opening. As I say, I could be wrong.
Here is the very basic brief opening I played out to get an idea of how black might look after he has castled kingside (again, a very brief attempt, no real analysis of lines or anything, could easily have made mistakes etc):
1. b4 e5
2. a3 d5
3. bb2 bd6
4. e3 nf6
5. nf3 bg4
6. c4 dxc4
7. bxc4 0-0
I am a big fan of developing all your pieces and castling before you start attacking the opponent, and this is where this fails for me as it doesn't seem that castling is quick or comfortable enough. White could even get into some trouble down that queenside once black can start throwing pawns at him after castling early.
I think this might actually be great against players under 1700 or so, and probably it could be excellent in a blitz game against an unsuspecting opponent.
We should play this out on RHP soon.
NOTE: I changed this post quite a bit from my original comments as the online board I was using forced me to make the moves for black, and I got rather a different position to yours, and I figured you might have meant to castle queenside not kingside.
