At this point, I will go with the transformer and leave the extra panel sitting there waiting for the day you quit the fire department and have time to come to the high desert.. I actually think that the breaking point is the big contactor and whether your local inspector lets you build with or without it. If it was without, it might be cheaper but those puppies are expensive.
It really isn't clear to me that this will get inspected anyway since the building department really is only interested in the panel and the outlets. Since it has no flu type exhaust, the mechanical guys don't get involved either The fire department will probably ask for a 20lb ABC extinguisher. The gloryhole is another matter and that drives them crazt. They cannot cope with a tool that doesn't have a flue.
