I forgot myself for a moment and read "That is a small house".

which is literally what it says to be fair.

The way to tell the difference between a toilet and a house which is small is that taigh-beag (toilet) is hyphenated.

Interesting - just like in Welsh 'ty bach'. Is it because the toilet was at the bottom of the garden in a 'little house'?
