Yes, I have a similar setup at work (though currently migrating it to DHCP 
to accommodate mobile clients and simplify management). But I suppose OP 
would like to basically keep his the architecture intact =)

Best wishes

For many years I have 8 Freebsd boxes behind a PF firewall on a static
labeled lan. Only one public address feeds the lan.  All the boxes can
work the internet and can ssh.

I found that easier than dhcp.
