Built on a sloping block,and single story house with garage underneath at front and a massive storeroom 3 times the size of our double garage joined on to garage,depends on excavation,15000-25000, concrete 6,000_12,000,the rest had to pretty much be there even if we didn't have this space.

You will need to provide more infor
Contours, Site report, sketches,etc
How high is your water table?
Dewatering during construction?
Ground water disposal and sumps?
I suggest you get it properly Designed, Engineered, weigh up various options,
and work out preliminary costs for starters

I am looking at a cellar build under my house. Materials alone is going to cost me 12k for a 4.8 x 8.4 cellar. Thats the concrete floor and walls. Fully owner built. I am basing it off a versa block retaining wall design that the engineer likes. Note I am doing the build myself and have my own excavator. Waterproofing will be a paint on product, with coreflute protection. ag pipe along foundation bottom, another at 1200 and another at 2200. You can get a drop in precast concrete product but I think the size is 2.4 x 4.8. Could fit a hatchback in there I suppose.

You could consider a car stacker instead of a full basement they are increasing in popularity
One extra thing to maintain and that could potentially go wrong. A friend of mine had two apartments with stackers in separate complexes and they were nothing but trouble..
