Ok, hand over the cigars and nobody gets hurt...
If I do go the high-end route, I will go with Bob @ Aristocrat because he is local to me and I can actually touch and feel the piece being built, and I can possibly coax him into helping me set it up ;)
I have about 5 boxes plus 2 single drawers and 2 doubles with about 300 sticks. I already have 3 spare shelves and another 3 spare double drawers that I removed to hold boxes. I have a couple desktop humidors not in use but those don't help with temperatare.
If you have the means for option three, go with option three. it is something you will have forever, and will never have to worry about it.

Sounds like option 1 is good for both short and mid term solution, cabinet would be mid and long term solution.
IF you buy a high end cabinet with temp controls you should stick with Aristocrat as they are in Dallas too. I would suggest picking up the unit to save freight completely. The farther away the cabinet builder is from you the more will cost to ship.
