Oh goody, I was right for once

If that is how you want to handle things, then that's fine. I personally think that using calibre is easier in the long term than any alternatives I have seen.

For what you want to do, after the conversion, do a "Save to disk". This will copy the new ebook to wherever you want it. There are a few choices on the menu and some preferences about exactly what to save (cover as a separate file, updating the metadata during the save), so have a play to get exactly what you want. Once you have done the save, you can delete the book from the calibre library. This will remove all evidence of the book and formats from within calibre.
