"small house" is toilet. That works. We still call it the outhouse sometimes. (or litter box to be funny)

Does the word apply just to the plumbing fixture or does it also apply to the entire room?

I never would've thought a toilet would have such a cute name!

I typed "antaidh beag" and wasn't marked wrong, though obviously I was..

I got it right, but how's to know whether it is a small house or the wee hoosie, taigh beag or taigh-beag, without context? is there some subtle difference in pronunciation?
