The idea to build a basement Rocket Silo came from here:
Basement Building Tips and Tricks

Build an Underground Silo to Store Your Rocket Ship. So… this might not necessarily be a “tip” but it’s still a pretty cool thing you should try. Start by building two basements down, then remove the ceiling from both blocks so you have a two-floor open pit in the ground. Now place your Sim’s Rocket Ship on the ground level. There you have it, you Sim’s very own private Rocket lair! Science!

For demonstration purposes I am using an empty 20x15 lot. Using this tutorial you can add the Rocket Silo to any lot. Planning the space is important. The base of the Rocket is 5x5 with an extra space in front. A larger space is required for placement to allow access so at least 7 wide by 9 at the front of the ship. The extra space in front allows for stairs. The most simple method is to just draw a 7x9 basement. Go to the first basement level and select a wall and return to ground level. You will see a yellow line outlining the basement space. Click on the line and Remove Ceiling. That will leave an open space. Make the basement as deep as you like and add stairs. Decorate and add Rocketship and you are ready to use your Rocket Silo.

For more dramatic results draw two basements on top of each other. Go to the first basement level and select a wall and return to ground level. You will see a yellow line outlining the basement space. Click on the line and Remove Ceiling. That will leave an open space. Go down to the lower level and remove that ceiling as well.

Another option that I used is to build 2 basements side by side at single wall height. Divide the two with a wall about one or two tiles wide. I made one basement smaller with just enough space for stairs and maybe a small underground lab later. Under the larger space for the rocket build a second lower basement the same size. The divider between the two first basements is to allow the celing to be removed from one portion. You now have a first level and second level basement side by side. Place stairs from ground level to first basement and from first level to second level basement.

That's clever, EQ. I have not made a basement in TS4 yet but your instructions make me think I can.
