Hi there,

Yes, you can do this with Home Design Studio Complete 17.5

Punch is very flexible so you can decide the order --> there are two options:
1 - You can set the slope or other topo elements and the walls after this. In this case the floor of the basement will be at elevation 0.00" of the project.
2 - You can create a sunken first floor (basement), In this case, the elevation of the floor of the basement will be negative (-96", for example)

Check these 2 examples

Anyway, you can set the levels of the house an lot as desired, not necessarily zero.

If you are interested, in my e-book Learning Punch Software (R): Basic & Advanced Training I have a chapter called "How To Start a New Project?" and sections regarding "How to set the different levels in the topography?" and "How to create a walk out basement?"
