Like digging more underground once the house is built?

Yes. A family member did it. Why not? I would just think once you're spending all that money on extending a basement maybe you want to extend on top of it too.

My previous landlord did it under the car port and although it was build with support when car was parked on top it still leaks. He had to stop using his parking spot. He recommends extending basement plus upper floors at the same time.

It is possible but usually extremely expensive per square foot and depends on your foundation type. You’ll need a structural engineer and an architect.
