I contacted my State E-Cycle Program and I was able to buy scrap laptop batteries from a bulk recycling processor in my area. I initially purchased 200 lbs and they received new quantities each month.

Currently processing 2000+ 18650 cells...

I would consider buying larger format cells instead and since you going to build house go for LiFePo4 or equal in larger format.

Neither less I dont have anything to add and hope you get what you look for!

UK or USA is quite a distance to swim?
I have troubles to get there also from what OP wants....It will take a loooong time.
Daromer give him a right answer, i am in the same situation, but i am almost done (yeah right) with my house.
