Me again! In US E an outhouse is a small enclosed outdoor toilet with no plumbing. If a remise is never that, then the outhouse translation doesn't work for US E, at least.

Va me chercher cet article dans la remise, il n'y en a plus en magasin.

    Hi,

    Thanks - I knew that. In the UK an outhouse is normally a storage space either adjoining the house or as a separate small outbuilding, not an outdoor loo. I've updated the entry to say that one is UK only.
