I think you would have same problem even if you were not using cross realm.

Google for: access 2008 share from non domain
or:         access CIFS share from non domain

He could use Remote Desktop Connection from home PC to work PC. And if he
really needs access to files from both, use the RDC to give the work PC
access to the home PC's disks.
