So i was building a big house and i wanted to make storage room in underground , guess what , there is a ravines under my house feels badman , i need to move my living place
Note : Check your ground first before making a house
Small caves are just free storage space; with a ravine it will be more work, but the stone you mine squaring up the place will become the floors and stairs for a multilevel complex with plenty of room for auto-ranches and item sorters
The other [or ANother] way to go is to throw up a shack/dirt hut and spiral down to bedrock before committing to the location. I prefer an 8x8 spiral [leaving a 6x6 area inside which is enough for a block item elevator, drop and ladder shaft, and occasional shorter transport mechanisms].
One generally seems to hit at least some cave, but often these can just be walled off and left for later expansion.
Working a ravine [to pacify it] from the top is my preferrred method. Block off a section top to bottom allowing easy access to all levels and push outward in one (or both) directions removing lava and adding lighting as you go.
For each expansion, I'll
cut a ledge (under an overhang to prevent drop-ins) a few above any lava;
pour water and torch just above it (second layer above the resulting obsidian)
add a few convenient doors (with anti-zombie pits) to provide escape if I end up falling/jumping into the water
(water floors also prevent spawns [pre-1.13/14, post- it may convert zombies into more dangerous drowned])
work from the top to light ledges, mine ores and explore/seal&mark off-shoot caves.
Good Building :>:

Why would you move your house? A ravine is perfect. You just go down there, clear it up, and use it in whatever way you want. I'd personally estimate how much of it I'd need to get a good sized room to store my valuables and cut it off from the rest.
Build a room/floor over the ravine with glass blocks for the floor and use the space how you like makes for a different type of build - then light up the ravine and maybe build a staircase down to the floor of the ravine and use that as a mining area - saves a lot of digging..
I'm building a guardian farm on a server I just joined, and I discovered a huge ravine under my ocean monument. This is the greatest of good luck, since I won't have to excavate all that cobblestone in order to carve out my storage rooms.
Treat the cave as the gift it is, and use it to your advantage.
One of my earlier worlds had a ravine below where I build my original house. About Y 12-45. Started digging a mine and about 20 blocks down broke into this huge place lit up by lava far below. Impressive. AND there was a mineshaft intersecting it. Took quite a while to explore and light it all, and all the rails came handy in the nether, but never really did anything with the space otherwise. I prefer to build stuff above ground.
Same for me, apart from it wasn't a ravine is was a big cave. Everytime I go into my house I hear the gurgles of zombies, and I don't know what to do, I could go down there and cover it all up, but that's with the risk of dying a lot. What should I do?
