sounds like you hava a problem with your fuse box as this is the type of smell given off if something is burning/ getting hoy,I would suggest that you get an electrician to look at this, regards Terry.

This sounds to me that you may have a leaking gully or sewer pipe under the house. I would definetly investigate further as it will only get worse.

The smell you refer to sounds like it comes from your drains and indicates that you have lost a trap "seal" somewhere within the property.

you need to lift the floor to find the cause of the smell possably a leak from the toilet.
